ACLU propaganda

From the Washington Post:
The American Civil Liberties Union is running Internet advertisements depicting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) as sheep.

"Bush wanted more power to eavesdrop on ordinary Americans, and we just followed along. I guess that's why they call us the Democratic leadersheep," say the two farm animals in the ad, referring to Congress's passage of legislation granting Bush a six-month extension and expansion of his warrantless wiretapping program.

If Bush really were eavesdropping on "ordinary Americans," it would spark bi-partisan outrage. If there were any evidence that that charge was true, however, I didn't find it in the ACLU press release on this ad. Truth is irrelevant when the goal is creating fear.
