Killer Ad… Now that’s a message! A new 527 called the Fight Back Campaign is going to start airing ads in Wisconsin and West Virginia on Monday that take on the Bush administration’s incompetent execution of the war in Iraq. The ads are very good: spare, elegant, and outrage-inspiring. It’s about time someone started talking about the war we’re actually in now, as opposed to the one that ended 30 years ago. You can view them here.
