Commercial Troubles

So the Bush campaign is obviously struggling to find any accomplishments to highlight in their commercials. They've got the swiftboat liars doing some of the dirty work and if any of you have watched the olympics, you've seen the terrible ad highlighting the two new "democracies" at the games. Unfortunately, the Iraqi soccer team was pretty pissed.
Midfielder Salih Sadir said that the Iraqi team - which won its group stage in Greece - was furious that it had been used in Bush's re-election campaign ads.

"Iraq as a team does not want Mr. Bush to use us for the presidential campaign," Sadir said .

One player accused the U.S. President of committing "many crimes", and another said he would be fighting U.S. occupation troops if he were not at the Olympic Games in Athens.

Did you hear that Bush? If he wasn't playing soccer he'd be in Iraq fighting against our kids over there. But that's not all, now the olympic committee is criticizing the ad and calling for the ad to be removed. Why not just campaign on the issues Georgie Boy??? Oh, that's right, then you're totally fucked.
