Bush apparently has a huge


Bush apparently has a huge war chest of campaign money. But he ain’t spending it on good advertising, that’s for sure. Check out these terrible ads. My favorite is the one making fun of John Kerry with old-fashioned black and white film and cheeseball saloon pianos (it’s the one called “Wacky” on the ad page.) I guess Republicans think that vaudeville is the next big thing with those mysterious “Gen Y” folk.

Also, check out the front page of this delightful bit of propaganda (if it hasn’t changed already.) “Bush celebrates Earth Day”??!?! By doing what, signing a few more oil contracts? Dipping seabirds in crude and setting them on fire?
