    REMEMBER THIS GIRL?: Her TV ad was deemed by most media critics as the most effective of the 2004 campaign. "Ashley's Story" as it was called circulated the blogosphere on thousands of sites and aired on television more than 30,000 times. Ashley's mother perished in 9/11 and when the President was told this at a rally where Ashley had come to see him the touching photo emerged. The USA TODAY and The Washington Times are both reporting that Ashley will be in attendance when President Bush is sworn in later today. Truly, a joyful reunion...

    As a political junkie who was born and raised in conservative southern Ohio, I was acutely interested in a post-election study by the liberal group America Coming Together of why President Bush beat Sen. John Kerry in the Buckeye State. The answer, according to their poll, sends a message that is conveniently flattering to grassroots organizing groups like America Coming Together as Democrats prepare to choose a new party chairman and assess where they go from here.

    This is a story of how powerful the new media has become. A phenomenon of sorts has grown from a picture of a 15-year old girl named Ashley Faulkner in a warm embrace with President Bush. It all began in early May. President George W. Bush was on the campaign trail in Ohio and one of his stops for the day was at the Golden Lamb Inn in Lebanon, Ohio. In this Cincinnati suburb awaited Ashley Faulkner and her father Lynn. They had arrived early with their friend Linda Prince to get a spot in the front of the line...

    When I was watching The Factor tonight, I loved the 9/11 ad that showed Dubya hugging the little girl. Anyone know where I can find it on the Internet? BushCo. needs to run this ad 24/7. Conservative Democrats will be wiping their eyes all the way to the polls to vote for Bush after watching this dynamite.
