Molly Ivins sets the record straight about George Bush’s environmental record in her latest column. This is timely because a Bush crony from Dallas just secretly spent several million dollars on “issue ads” slamming McCain on the environment and praising Bush in states with upcoming primaries, like New York. They’re called issue ads because theoretically they discuss an issue and not candidates, and thus aren’t subject to spending regulations the way donations directly to a candidate are. Odd, then, that not only do the ads mention Bush and McCain by name, but they also transpose McCain’s face over smokestacks belching pollution. Dirty, dirty politics.
