Unbelievable!

It's incredible, but right now at GeorgeWBush.com --- on the front page --- there is an ad for their "Closing Video". And the photo they're using to advertise it (which appears in the video) is a FAKE!

The version of the photo below is from Kos, who has the whole story. It shows the faked soldiers circled! Apparently, Bush was speaking on a podium where the soldiers have been pasted in with Photoshop.

Unbelievable. The kid with the flag looks faked to me as well, but I'll let you know if I can find the original photo to confirm that.

I do believe they've just jumped the shark!

UPDATE: They've just changed the photo to the ad on the front page of GeorgeWBush.com! I guess getting busted will do that to ya! Here's the photo they're using now...

Too funny. CNN's now on it as the Bush campaign says they're gonna recut their doctored video! :-)

President Bush's campaign acknowledged Thursday that it had doctored a photograph used in a television commercial and said the ad will be re-edited and reshipped to TV stations.

The photo of Bush addressing a group of soldiers was edited to take out a podium, aides said, and a group of soldiers in the crowd was electronically copied and used to fill where the podium had been.

"Bush/Cheney '04: Whatever It Takes...Indeed"

UPDATE: And here finally, is the original photo that they created the fake from in the first place.
