    Remember, this ad campaign is being orchestrated by the same advertising and media consultants who made the oh-so-subtle-and-honest Swift Boat Veterans for Truth advertising campaign.

    This is just so far over the line of reason, though, I don't see how anyone can take it seriously.

    •  Hmmm (none)
      Hadn't thought of the connection but the absurdity of the ad makes more sense now. The swift liars paid $400,000 for their first ad and got $40,000,000 worth of value out of it through all of the SCLM playing of it. The more outrageous the ad, the more it gets free play.
