ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Media Fund ad, Talent wants to kill you!

Last night, while getting my daughter ready for her bath, I saw the following ad from the "Media Fund," attacking Jim Talent for his vote against federal funding of embryonic stem cell research.

It is the most despicable ad I've seen in this campaign season. As this parody points out, its also very selfish.

But hey, let's not get in the way by talking science. We want our cures now! Anybody that opposes my ideas of whats right and wrong must want to maim, torture, and kill me!

If she has any self-respect, McCaskill should denounce this ad immediately!


Of course, Conspirators all know that Media Fund is a Soros-backed organization - one of his many 527s which he's hoping will sway the election. Here's the info from Discover The Networks (a great tool for any member of the Vast Right-Wing / Rovian Conspiracy):

[The Media Fund] was founded by Harold Ickes, a Democrat lobbyist and strategist who is widely recognized as the chief organizer of the Shadow Party. After passage of the McCain-Feingold Act of March 27, 2002, Ickes helped put George Soros together with such activists as Andrew Stern, Ellen R. Malcolm, Steve Rosenthal, Gina Glantz, Cecile Richards and others who were seeking ways to circumvent McCain-Feingold's soft-money ban. While Malcolm, Glantz and Rosenthal were cobbling together the coalition of labor unions, pro-abortion activists and environmentalists that would later emerge as America Coming Together (ACT), Ickes sought to organize what he informally called a "media fund" -- or sometimes "the president's media fund" -- a Section 527 stealth PAC that would raise money for campaign advertising. Ickes finally decided to simply call it The Media Fund, launching it in early 2003.

Ahh, Soros and his Leftist millionaire buddies... men of the people!

I saw this ad for the first time last night. I feel sorry for all those poor sick people to whom the pro-Amendment 2 folks are promising instant cures.
