Jon Huntsman is taking aim at Mitt Romney with a cheekily named attack site/Internet ad mocking his strategy of avoiding pesky things like reporters. Called "Scared Mittless," the site, which was spotted by the Atlantic Wire, features a video detailing his various evasions spliced together with clips of him running, taken from a 2007 ad—because he’s "running from America," get it?

The site also sports a parody of Romney's logo and features links to a host of articles detailing Romney’s detached strategy, with headlines like "Mitt’s Vanishing Act" or "Don’t Take It Personally Iowa; Romney’s Avoiding Everyone." The piece de resistance: a clock counting how long it’s been since Romney’s last Sunday show appearance (currently 610 days) and press conference (28 days).
