Paccione TV Ad lies...

The Denver Post, liberal lion of Colorado, has a piece on how Angry Angie's new TV ad is just plain wrong.

Angry Angie outright lies when she says that Musgrave supported the President's prescription drug plan. Marilyn voted against it. Twice.

From the Post:
Ad watch: Congress for sale?
Congress for sale?
Title: Stand
Sponsor: Angie Paccione for Congress
Type: TV ad
The message:
Democratic 4th Congressional District candidate Angie Paccione tells an
that for the past five years in Washington, special interests -
pharmaceutical and oil companies - have written legislation,
including the
Medicare prescription drug benefit. As she talks, an image of
President Bush
kissing U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave is flashed on the screen
and "sold out" is
stamped on the frame. "What this administration and
what this Congress has
done is really sold out to the special interests,"
Paccione says.
Musgrave twice voted against the
Prescription Drug and Medicare Improvement
Act of 2003, even after a
personal phone call from President Bush urging her to
vote for it.
The act passed by a final vote of 220 to 215, with 204 Republicans
voting for the measure along with 16 Democrats. One independent voted for
the plan. [Emphasis Added]

Silly Angie... if you play with fire, you're gonna get burned.

Side note: Am I the only one that thinks Angie's ad is horribly produced?

UPDATE: Adam Schrager from 9NEWS agrees that Angry Angie lies in her TV ad.
