If any contender in the GOP primary race can be said to have surged ahead of the pack during the last few months, it's the negative attack ad. Accounting for 92 percent of all campaign commercials that ran during Florida primary elections and tens of thousands of dollars in campaign expenditures, the barrage of negative campaigns have put candidates' shortcomings on full display.

And as usual, what's horrible for the candidates is awesome for comedy. Case in point: the latest political sketch from Funny or Die, 'Double Negative Political Ad,' which takes on the increasingly nasty tone of the GOP primary elections without forgetting the issues, like the fact Newt Gingrich looks like an elephant seal.

Check out the video above.
