Get ready for the next ‘manufactured scandal’ to bubble up from the barking moonbat left. It has already started in the comments section of this Washington Monthly post. Be warned- Kevin Drum’s comments section is not the same as it was two years ago- now it is a cesspool for DU groupthink.
At any rate, the next manufactured scandal will be that the ‘Bush/Cheney campaign is comparing Democrats to Hitler.’ Where do they get this wild idea- hold on to something, because you are going to laugh out loud.
The Bush Campaign has released a new campaign video titled “The Faces of John Kerry’s Democratic Party: The Coalition of the Wildeyed.” The commercial then splices together the following pieces:
1.) Al Gore at a podium, yelling: “How dare they drag the good name of the United States of America through the mud of Saddam Hussein’s torture prison?”
2.) A small portion of one of the controversial Hitler ads made for the MoveOn.Org contest, in which a picture of Hitler with the words “What were War Crimes in 1945” morphs into President Bush, and the words “Are Foreign Policy in 2003” are shown. That was a clip from the “Lies Fuel Fear” ad which can be found here.
3.) Howard Dean yelling: “I want my country back!”
4.) Michael Moore, at the OScars, stating: “We live in a time, where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons.”
5.) Dick Gephardt stating emphatically: “This President is a Miserable Failure.”
6.) Another small clip from the MoveOn.Org ad contest commercial, with pictures of Hitler speaking and audio a Hitler speech, with these Bush words on the screen: “God told me to strike at Al Qaeda and I struck them.” The picture then changes from Hitler to Bush, with the words “and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did.” All of this is taken directly from the MoveOn contest commercial “Sound Familiar,” which can be found here.
7.) Al Gore yelling: “He betrayed this country! He played on our fears!”
8.) John Kerry at a stump speech: “Today, today, George Bush will lay off your camel, tax your shovel, kick your ass, and tell you there is no Promised Land.”
9.) The commecial fades to black from the picture of Kerry, and these words appear: “This is not a time for pessimism and rage…”
The commercial ends with a picture of Bush, light music, and the following words on screen: “President Bush: It’s time for optimism, steady leadership, and progress. Paid for by Bush/Cheney ’04, Inc.”
And that is the whole commercial. Go watch it.
And that is how the loony left is going to claim that Bush is comparing Kerry and Gore to Hitler. A commercial in which clips of THEIR COMPARISONS of Bush to Hitler are being used to show you how outof control and crazed the Democrats have become will be willfully and intentionally spun to mean the polar opposite of its intent.
Watch this meme spread. I will try to track it from its birth at the Washington Monthly comments section.

The folks at Democrats.com aim to please:
Remember how the Busheviks screamed about the two Moveon ads from volunteers (out of 1000+) that compared Bush’s dictatorship to Hitler’s? Well, if they hate those ads so much, how come they keep finding ways to promote them? These Moveon ads are featured in Bush’s latest Web ad, sandwiched between clips from Al Gore, Howard Dean, Michael Moore, Dick Gephardt, and John Kerry. What unites these widely-divergent figures? The introduction calls them, “The Faces of John Kerry’s Democratic Party – the Coalition of the Wild-eyed.” Obviously the Busheviks have given up all hope of winning the election, so they are resorting to pure trash.
All eyes on the meme, please
