What Fresh Hell Is This?

The Puppies Are Coming! The Puppies Are Coming!

By now, if you're living in a battleground state, you've probably already seen the latest Bush ad entitled "Wolves." The ad is a takeoff on the '84 Reagan ad that featured a bear in the woods that was meant to represent the threat of the Soviet Union. This time around, the animals in question are meant to represent the terrorist threat (that liberals would make us too weak to defend, of course).

The problem with the ad is that it's 2004, not 1984 and the viewing public is far more sophisticated -- and armed with grassroots technology -- to ridicule these ads which many have noted feature canines who look more like German Shepherds than the Big Bad Wolf (Maybe a dingo ate your baby).

Oh, and besides that, as we've come to expect from the Bushies the ad contains misleading statements and factual errors.

And in this current rapid response political climate, the wolves have their own PR machine and the Democrats already have their own alternative Animal Kingdom ad.
