Update on new radio ads in Ohio

The press is picking up on our new project, running anti-war radio ads using the ideas and voices of average Americans who called in to share their opinions about Iraq. The first round of ads are made up of Ohioans, and end with a call to action to contact Ohio Senator George Voinovich and tell him to end the war in Iraq.

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Ohio's Republican Sen. George Voinovich, voted against the timeline [for withdrawl from Iraq]. He agrees that "we do need to be out of there," said spokesman Chris Paulitz. But "he does not believe in setting a timetable and telling our enemies when we're leaving." Americans United for Change, a group that has opposed the war and other Bush initiatives, today will start running ads on radio stations in Cleveland and Columbus asking listeners to call Voinovich.

And from the Cleveland Plain Dealer Blog, Openers:

Over the next week, listeners on WTAM in Cleveland and WTVN-AM and WSNY-FM in Columbus will hear voices including that of Debbie Evans, a nurse in northeast Ohio. Her son is in the Army -- in Kuwait right now, en route to Iraq next week, she said in a phone interview.

The War Czar

Just who is in charge of the war in Iraq?

As Conan O'Brien so eloquently states, George W. Bush doesn't want the job: 

It's a sad state of affairs when late-night comedians understand Constitutional law better than the President of the United States.
