The New Bush Ads: A Color-Blind Administration?

campaigning while brownRyan Lizza blogs on another Bush first: First candidate to use 9/11 in an ad, and now the first candidate have an ad that includes "the image of a dark-skinned man who is obviously meant to be a terrorist." They must be so proud!


Writes Lizza:

    The Bush campaign held a conference call for the press this afternoon to unveil the ads, and one reporter asked whether it was appropriate to use an Arab-American to depict a terrorist. Campaign aides said the actor in "100 Days" wasn't Arab-American.

Right. It was "cheaper and quicker" to use an Arab-American impersonator.
