'Sforza' Now Spelled With A Ctrl-V

Ah, the end of October. When Bush's multiple obfuscatory attempts to disown a Sforzian Background-related scandal change faster than the autumn leaves. Last year this time it was "Mission Accomplished." This year, well:

The Bush-Cheney campaign's final TV ad, aptly named "Whatever It Takes," contains a doctored image of a Scott Sforza trademark the Military Backdrop.

Check out the original image--with Bush and his podium--and the Photoshopped version the campaign started running yesterday--with its obviously cloned warriors.

Still, Bush has learned a lesson in accountability since the 'Mission Accomplished' Banner snafu, which he originally tried to blame on the military. Not this time. No, with this commercial, it's the editor's fault.
