Wolfpacks for Truth

Did you see the new Bush ad featuring the scary wolves that look more like cute adorable puppies? You know, the ad that is so original it is basically a rip off of the old Regan "Bear in the Woods" ad (that actually featured a scary bear). You know, the ad that when showed on Crossfire received laughter and jeers from the crowd as the GOP hack co-host tried to paint it as very good.

Well, now there's this from Wolfpacks for Truth.org:
When the camera crew showed up, we wondered why they were all driving Hummers. Our agent
assured us it was a Greenpeace commercial and they paid TWICE our hourly steak rate. Little did we know we were being tricked into this vicious campaign attack ad.

We are not Terrorists!
There you go. The wolves were duped; unknowing pawns in the Bush team's web of lies. Oh, about that web. You might want to read this bit from Slate that discusses the obvious distortion in the ad. You see, no one proposed cutting intelligence spending after 9-11. Everyone, including the GOP, proposed cutting intelligence (and the military) back in 1993 as part of the "Peace Dividend."

What, you didn't get that from Bush's puppies ad? Gee, I'm sure the Bush team thinks just terrible.
