New Bush Campaign Advertisement

Like George, I’ll be teaching an election theme in my freshman composition course this fall, and his recent collection of some prominent political weblogs should be very helpful for me as I set up my course blog (note: I’ve been planning to include one essay by Lakoff, and this exerpt from Moral Politics just might work)..

In addition, I’m planning to ask students to do analyses of some political advertisements (both historical and contemporary). With that in mind, I came across an article on Yahoo about a controversial new Bush advertisement, “Solemn Duty,” which invokes the September 11 attacks. Might be interesting to talk about this ad/the coverage of it in the Yahoo article.
