This needs to go mainstream now.

In a last ditch bid to win Pennsylvania’s electoral votes, where Democratic Sen. John Kerry is leading is most polls, President George W. Bush has engaged in mailings which contain myriad graphic images of the burning World Trade Center on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.

They have the images on their site. It's real. This is the slimiest hit piece they've done so far, and that's saying something.

Remember, Bush promised not to politicize September 11th. They couldn't be exploiting it more nakedly than this. Let's nail them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    In all their hideous glory.

    BTW, it's a flier, not a TV commercial. Just FYI.

  •  I just saw an ad from the Bush Campaign (none)
    that uses a speech of Bush, where he almost cracks and looks as if he would start to cry. That is supposed to make him look as a human, compassionate and sensitive man. He was truely overwhelmed at that time over the 9/11 events and he saluted the troops etc. It's just shameful to use that videoclip today for campaign purposes.

    What is so disgusting is that the people, who make and use the ads, use the rare video clips of Bush, that show true emotions (instead of fake ones) to abuse the American people on the emotional level.

    There is no shame and no limit in the US to use any intimite emotional touching film clip for any political or economic purpose.

    Americans have sold themselves out completely to the professional advertiser industry to allow them to mislead the viewers with fake emotions.

    I guess the real consequence of all this is that many people become completely unable to rely and show true emotions at all.

    For free speech, against free lies.
