I’m reading this article on Reuters… and I happened to actually stop and take a look at the ad on the page. I would copy and paste it here for you, but it’s flash.
It read as follows:
The Democratic party is the only organization working hand in hand with my campaign to get out the vote and win a democratic victory on November 2nd. But we can’t win without your help. Please contribute today. Signed, John Kerry.”
Typical campaign ad, but what really struck my eye was the disclaimer below:
“This communication is not authorized by any candidate or any candidate’s committe.”
That just kind of… blew me away. So his signature is on the ad, but he didn’t authorize it? I guess there is a fine line between authorization and endorsement these days…
