BREAKING NEWS: Bushie accepts responsibility for mistake!
No, not Junior! (link)
INDIANOLA, Iowa - 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 remove both the president and the podium where he was standing. A group of soldiers in the crowd was electronically copied to fill in the space, aides say.
"There was no need to do that," said Mark McKinnon, head of Bush's advertising team who shouldered the blame. "Everyone technically works for me so I accept the responsibility."
Shocking! Someone associated with Bush actually takes responsibility for the actions of an underling!
I think we should chalk this up as a minor victory and leave it at that. We shouldn't let this distract our attention from the al Qaqaa scandal. In fact, considering how Bush has been getting hammered on that over the last four days, I bet his people were happy to be dealing with something as small as this.
We shouldn't let this distract us from the bigger issue.
