MoveOn Strikes McCain on Iraq
"Candles" starts with a birthday cake with five candles, to mark the five years since President Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech. It also uses images we'll probably be quite familiar with by November: Bush hugging or kissing McCain (on the forehead).
Here's the script:
"Five years ago, George Bush stood under a 'Mission Accomplished' banner and announced: 'Major combat operations in Iraq have ended.'
John McCain said the end of the Iraq war was very much in sight.
Now, we need to know how long we'd be in Iraq if John McCain were president.
'And then I don't think American's are concerned if we're there for 100 years or 1,000 years or 10,000 years.'
One hundred years in Iraq? And you thought no one could be worse than George Bush.
An e-mail to reporters states that MoveOn will spend $160,000 to air the ad on cable, and on broadcast television stations in Iowa, and New Mexico, where the group says McCain is currently airing ads, "unopposed." (Indeed McCain is airing a new health care ad in Iowa.)
