GOP Hitlermongering

Moveon.org had a contest where people submitted homemade political advertisements - Bush in 30 seconds - to be judged by celebrities. Two out of the more than 1500 entries had footage of Hitler. They were not sponsored by Moveon.org.

Conservatives have used this to claim that Moveon compares Bush to Hitler, and have included footage of the submitted ads in a bizarre ad campaign against John Kerry.

This morning Drudge claimed Moveon still had the ads on its website. Ed Gillespie, Chairman of the RNC released a Press Release condemning it. Wes Boyd, of Moveon.org, responded. The ads were placed in a secure location on the server so that journalists could look at them for stories on the RNC ads. The public had no access to them.
