It’s begun. The divisivness that will be used to split America during this election season has started, along with an aim at ads to be run against Howard Dean. Are you a Dean supporter? According to this press release, you’re a latte sippin’, body piercing, public radio listening kindof person, and that just ain’t right for America. Jeez. Then again, what do you expect from people who think George Bush’s tax cuts have stimulated the economy? The only thing they’ve stimulated is George Bush right up the Billionaire’s colons.
Get a clue, guys. If you have something to fear, it’s what George Bush and his cronies will think up next. I’d suggest being in a cave in October, 2004. Why? Because that’s the big surprise coming up. Either some sort of fabricated attack (most likely), the death of one of his family members (for sympathy), or *tada* the capture of bin Laden. Look for it.Club Targets Dean and Liberal Groups in New Multi-Million Dollar Campaign; Ads in Iowa, New Website Blast Left-Wing Activities

The Club for Growth PAC, the political action arm of the nation’s leading tax cut organization will unveil a new television advertising campaign in Iowa and New Hampshire that criticizes former Vermont Governor Howard Dean’s tax-hiking ideology as hopelessly out of step with the rest of America.
“Howard Dean’s liberalism may play well with latte-drinking, body-piercing, public radio listening crowd, but it won’t play with hard-working Americans. For the last year, Howard Dean has moved further and further to the left. He has admitted he would repeal the Bush tax cuts, which jump-started the economy. For that reason alone, Howard Dean poses a grave threat to the economic well being of all Americans,” said Stephen Moore, President of the Club for Growth.
Moore will further announce the Club’s $4 million campaign that will combat ads by left-wing groups being largely funded by liberal activists and businessmen George Soros, Peter Lewis and others.
The ads, which will begin Jan. 7, will air in Des Moines, Iowa. Details of the press conference are as follows:

The new Club for Growth PAC ad is believed to be the first to use “hard” dollars for a genuine issue ad as required by the new free speech restrictions in the recently adopted campaign finance legislation.
The Club for Growth was founded in 1999 to elect pro-economic growth fiscal conservatives. That organization forwards campaign contributions from its members to the most free-market oriented candidates in targeted congressional races. In the 2000 election cycle the Club for Growth spent $ 2.4 million to help elect 10 new Republicans to Congress. The Club for Growth has grown six- fold since the 2000 election cycle and the Club and its members raised or donated over $10 million to help elect seventeen new Members of Congress in the 2002 election cycle.
