The Right, gracious in victory as always:

...a billboard blitz "thanking" Hollywood for the reelection of President Bush will be unveiled early next week.

The advertisements feature the faces of liberal Hollywood icons Michael Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Affleck, Martin Sheen, Chevy Chase, Barbara Streisand, and Sean Penn, and offer thanks to Hollywood their help getting President Bush reelected.

...Billboard creator Citizens United, a group that advocates a return to traditional American values, has purchased the use of three billboards near the Kodak Theatre (home of the Academy Awards) for the month of February, which includes Oscar Night, Sunday, February 27....

--Human Events

I like that -- "a group that advocates a return to traditional American values." The truth is that the "values" Bossie believes in include intimidation and deceit:

David Bossie ... later went to Capitol Hill, where he worked as an aide to Sen. Lauch Faircloth, R-N.C. In that capacity he angered U.S. District Judge Henry Woods by requesting Woods' financial records weeks before he was to rule on a Whitewater matter, in what Woods saw as an intimidation attempt.

Bossie then moved on to work for Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee chairman who once called Clinton a "scum bag."

Bossie was forced out in May after he bungled the release of Webb Hubbell's prison tapes, getting Burton in hot water with fellow Republicans by producing edited transcripts that omitted sections favorable to the Clintons. The tapes were of calls Hubbell, Clinton's longtime Arkansas friend and former associate attorney general, made in 1995 and 1996 from a Maryland prison ....

And, of course, Citizens United was the outfit that (before Bossie joined up) gave us the "Willie Horton" ad.

Here's what Bossie's putting up in H'wood:

All class.

(And I'm ashamed to say that, like me, he's from East Boston, Massachusetts.)
