Bush Ads Bend Kerry Truth

So, the official Bush campaign is about two weeks old, and they’re already rolling out the B.S. attack ads. Among other interesting reactions to this is the following article from the Washington Post: Bush exaggerates Kerry’s position on intelligence budget.

I have to say, I’m really happy to see some of the mainstream media willing to immediately come out and call this ad misleading. Hopefully that’s a sign of a larger unwillingness to let the echo chamber frame the debate this time around. We’ll see, I guess.

    This weekend I assembled a techno song that grabs snippets from Bush’s 2004 State of the Union speech — remember where he was unable to pronounce “Abu Ghraib”? — and slices/reassembles them into some funny pretzels. It’s catchy, and funny, and I would like very much to get it heard as widely as possible before the election. You can snag the MP3 at this link:
