Pure Manure: Freedom's Watch -- Propaganda Videos With A Twist!

A group of Bush loyalists headed by Ari Fleischer have reportedly spent $15 million on a pro-war advertising campaign targeting 20 "key states" with the following ads:

Veteran (60 sec)

Jesse (30 sec)

Robinson (30 sec)

Travis (30 sec)

The videos have attracted hundreds of comments at YouTube; one from jeanmhas may be the most telling:
These ads all encourage you to call Congress, but that number isn't Congress. It gets you an operator who asks you to take a survey BEFORE they connect you with Congress. Go try it. If you don't agree with them, you can't get through. They won't even give people the truth about Congress's phone number. Which, by the way, is (202) 224-3121 for the Senate, and (202) 225-3121 for the House.
