Vote GOP or die

They think they can insult you into voting for Republicans:

In a repeat of the 2004 campaign, a group supportive of the president, Progress for America, began running an advertisement this week on national cable television and on stations in Missouri echoing Mr. Bush’s new theme. With images including the World Trade Center collapsing on Sept. 11, 2001, and pictures of terrorists, including Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of the Iraqi insurgency who was killed in June, an announcer says, "These people want to kill us."
The announcer continues: "Many seem to have forgotten the evil that happened only five years ago. They would cut and run in the Middle East, leaving Al Qaeda to attack us again."

These "many" strawmen who "have forgotten" apparently live mostly in Missouri -- or watch only those cable channels that are bereft of reminders that the anniversary is soon.
