New DNC Ad Shows US Troops Being Blown Up

Howard Dean sent the following email to his mailing list yesterday which perpetuates the outright lie that McCain said we should be in Iraq 100 years...
In addition to the McCain clip, this nasty advertisement features a clip of ... American soldiers being killed by an IED.

Yes, that’s right. The Democratic Party is using images of US troops being attacked by terrorists to make political points against John McCain.
Even more unbelievably, the IED clip comes from Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11. It’s at about 1:35 in this trailer: Fahrenheit 9/11 trailers.
...this ad is beyond the pale; the entire ad is based on “a rank falsehood,” according to
The obligatory “DNC ad runs footage of soldiers being bombed in Iraq” post
What’s offensive isn’t the footage, it’s the left’s insane hypocrisy in wetting its pants over a one-second image of Osama Bin Laden in Hillary’s attack ad while shrugging off stuff like this as simple yet powerful doses of reality to awaken a complacent public. If McCain went the route Ace suggests and inserted images of 9/11 jumpers in one of his ads, Arianna Huffington would need smelling salts and Olbermann would have to allot an extra hour for “Countdown” to accommodate his rage. Meanwhile, the DNC could show a Marine getting his head blown off and Chris Matthews would ask the Hardball panel, “Doesn’t America need to see this?”
