Rudy Vs. MoveOn.org, For Another Round

The MoveOn.org vs. Rudy fight goes another round, as the Giuliani campaign unveils a new radio ad – that echoes “Rambo” a bit.

Voiceover: MoveOn.org is the most powerful left wing group in the country. They spent millions electing anti-war liberals. And publicly brag how the Democratic Party is theirs – bought and paid for.
Why is MoveOn attacking Rudy Giuliani?
Because he’s their worst nightmare.
They know Rudy is a Republican who can beat the Democrats.  And they know, no matter what they say- Rudy will never, ever back down.
Rudy Giuliani:  I’m Rudy Giuliani, and I approve this message.
Voiceover: Paid for by the Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee, Incorporated.

According to this NPR interview, MoveOn.org wants to use “betrayal” as a George Lakoff-style “framing” device for the 2008 elections. My guess is, we’ll see some sort of MoveOn response to this ad that again uses the word “betrayal.”
