Conservative pitbulls: "You're next, old people!"

The International Herald-Tribune has an article today about USA Next, a conservative attack group that is partly made up of the same people who engineered the "Swift Vets and POWs for Truth" campaign that destroyed John Kerry's presidential campaign last year. The group has recently started running ads attacking the American Association for Retired People, who oppose Bush's plan for overhauling Social Security; the ads, which run at conservative publication American Spectator's website, claim that the organization supports same-sex marriage, even though the group has never officially taken a position on the subject one way or another. And even lovelier, the ad itself shows an American soldier with a bix 'X' drawn on him, next to a photo of two gay men french-kissing.

Coming next year: the secret tax-and-spend agenda of puppies and babies!
