These ads are deadly. They’re also from a White House front group, something I know a hell of a lot about. Many of you know my work from the 2006 election and my anti swiftboating campaigns. Well, Ari Fleischer has stepped up to pimp once again for the president. Americablog has more from Tom Matzzie, who is (**cough**) thanking Fleischer for his flacking. It’s priceless.

So if you want to know how Republicans win battles this is a good lesson. When
Congress runs astray from White House policy, the president’s minions target
them. This is a lesson for Reid, but also Pelosi, as Democrats get weak and
the Blue Dog Democrats ponder aligning against the country’s own interest and
our soldiers on Iraq. That’s why Stoller’s Bush dog campaign is so important over at Open Left.

By the way, the BlogAd on the left hand margin is from good people fighting this fight
with us. Visit their website
and show your support.

Below is the White House hit list, starting with congressional member, the market the ad will run in, gross ratings
points of the ad purchased, and total money to be invested. I received the information
via email.
