MoveOn.org Screws Up In Ad

Thanks to Glenn Reynolds for the tip on James Taranto's "Best of the Web" online column in the Wall Street Journal' OpinionJournal. Taranto shares a letter from a friend, just returned from his third tour in Iraq, who noticed that the soldiers "missing" Thanksgiving dinner in their new ad were, in fact British soldiers, for whom Thanksgiving is not a holiday. Click on the Taranto's title of the piece, "Mistaken Identity", for a link to MoveOn's plea for money to support its ad, including photos from the ad.

The guy's resentment at MoveOn for pretending to represent his interests is palpable.
