Tinseltown tiffed

From NewsMax:

The Hollywood billboards posted by the conservative group Citizens United certainly express a viewpoint.

"W. Still President!" shouts one. Another taunts: "Four More Years!"

Both, tongue-in-cheek, jeer: "Thank You, Hollywood!"

Depicted beneath a smiling and triumphant President Bush, in solemn dejected ranks, are Martin Sheen, Chevy Chase, Sean Penn, Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Affleck and Barbra Streisand – the salient of Tinseltown’s infamously backfired effort to keep President George W. Bush from a second term in the White House.

Citizens United sponsored the signs to coincide with the buildup to Oscar night.

That was apparently too much to bear for at least one disgruntled vandal, who painted a Swastika on George Bush’s forehead last week.

In the end, however, you had to get up pretty early in the morning to see the defaced billboard.

David Bossie, the president of Citizens United and the author of the new book "The Many Faces of John Kerry," says he and his organization were expecting such shenanigans – arranging in advance with the sign company that the billboards would be immediately repaired if damaged in any way.

The Citizens United certainly seem to know their enemy.
