Here’s a potential ad script for GWB:
BUSH: “Hi, I’m George W. Bush, and I approved this message”
DISSOLVE TO SENATOR ZELL MILLER, REPUBLICAN CONVENTION:
MILLER: No pair has been more wrong, more loudly, more often than the two Senators from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry.
Together, Kennedy/Kerry have opposed the very weapons system that won the Cold War and that is now winning the War on Terror…
I could go on and on and on: against the Patriot Missile that shot down Saddam Hussein’s scud missiles over Israel; against the Aegis air-defense cruiser; against the Strategic Defense Initiative; against the Trident missile; against, against, against.
This is the man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of our U.S. Armed Forces?
U.S. forces armed with what? Spitballs?
DISSOLVE TO SENATOR KERRY, FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE:
KERRY: Right now the president is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to research bunker-busting nuclear weapons…Not this president. I’m going to shut that program down.
FREEZE FRAME, HEAVY REVERB ON LAST WORD
VOICEOVER: Shutting programs down and undermining our own troops’ security in a time of war. No wonder Senator Miller–who’s in the same party as Senator Kerry–doesn’t believe that Senator Kerry should be president.
–There’s your 2004 Dukakis in the tank moment, using the Senator’s own words.
Update: Robert Modean, in the seventh comment of this Brothers Judd post, also has a great commercial script all ready to go.
