Familiar Faces

Marvin Gaye said it best:

People say believe half of what you see
Oh, and none of what you hear.

It’s unlikely that the Motown legend ever knew Bret Schundler,
and unless you live in New Jersey, you’ve probably never heard
of him either. He is a conservative Republican running for
governor of the Garden State.

It seems Bret is having trouble finding enthusiastic, young
supporters to pose with him in photos. But hey, that’s why
God invented Photoshop, right?

I mean, who’s really going to notice that the folks behind him
are actually from a Howard Dean rally? It’s not like these are
real people -- they’re just political props, window-dressing.


By the way, this is not a new Republican tactic. The Bush/Cheney
campaign used a similar dirty trick during the 2004 election.
