Think 'Throw Granny off a cliff' was extreme?

Mitt Romney's running mate Paul Ryan is being mocked in an attack ad for his proposal to end Medicare. The ad, called "Throw Granny Off the Cliff," shows a Ryan lookalike pushing a grandmother out of her wheelchair and over a cliff.

It asks the question, "Is America beautiful without Medicare? Ask Paul Ryan and his friends in Congress." It then gives Ryan's Congress phone number. The ad was made privately by political group The Agenda Project,

If you think the ad is unfair, over the top or in poor taste, watch this:

It shows Ryan mocking a 71-year-old man who's been wrestled to the ground by police. His offense? He asked Ryan a question about his proposal to cut Social Security.

Nice guy.
