Those Bush-equals-Hitler ads never got past the first round of a contest on the MoveOn Web site -- a contest they lost. If you want hate that actually makes it onto the airwaves, you have to turn to the right wing:
A conservative advocacy group will begin running a TV ad in Iowa against Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean....
The Club for Growth Political Action Committee said the 30-second spot against the former Vermont governor will begin running in Des Moines today — two weeks before the Iowa Democratic caucuses.
In the ad, a farmer says he thinks that "Howard Dean should take his tax-hiking, government-expanding, latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading ..." before the farmer's wife then finishes the sentence: "... Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show back to Vermont, where it belongs." ...
(UPDATE: Atrios is absolutely right -- people get away with saying things like this because there's a double standard for regional bigotry. But that's no surprise: there's a national myth, relatively new but tacitly endorsed by a lot of supposedly smart people, that says if you live in a state that borders an ocean and that state wasn't part of the Confederacy, you're not really an American. Any time you hear some solemn talking head question whether a Democrat who isn't from the South can be president, that's not just a tiresome airing-out of conventional wisdom -- it's a reinforcement of the myth that people from certain states aren't full citizens. To this lifelong Northeasterner, those are fighting words, pal.)
