I love it! Look above Schundler's left elbow-- you can see Dean's thumb sticking out. This is even better than Magneto being the King of Spain.

Surely while Schundler was using photoshop to update this website that he hand-built himself, he was twisting his mustache and cackling "muahahahaha."

My favorite bit of the story was reading an article in the Record (local Northern NJ paper) about how the firm who created the ad claimed to "be unaware of the origin of the photo." Because, you know, the giant Dean signs they deliberately Shopped over weren't big enough clues.

The headline might as well have been "position now available in political firm graphics department, send resumes to..."

If you look at his main page and mouse over the yellow "Forrester admits his plan.." window, you get to hear some original music Mr. Schundler composed too.

I wonder if this is indicative of the problems politicians have getting young people to be involved in their causes. It was something Dean did great and it's not surprising that it might be easier for other politicians to steal a picture from Dean than, you know, actually excite young people.

'Excite'? Isn't a chance to tour the birthplace of civilization (and kill people) enough to excite any young person?

Strange that when you visit Schundler's site it plays the ominous Empire's theme from Star Wars in it's entirety with no explanation whatosever. The guy is either an idiot (likely based on his last campaign against McGreevey) or else the person who put of the site was having a bit of fun. Oh, well, at least he didn't try to put up a .wmv for "Deutschland ├╝ber Alles".

These politicians should consult me before they attempt these Photoshop stunts. (self-links)

psmealey - the Star Wars Music plays when you mouse over the image of Forrester on the upper right of Schundler's site.

aren't that problematic if your young people, like Dean's, don't actually go out and vote in the primaries.

honestly, hockeyman, I didn't even notice that that was what triggered it... now that's good web page design!

I think the word we're looking for here is "busted".

Jeez. Too lazy even to find his own crowd of excited young people.

One photo was taken at a 2004 Dean for President rally sponsored by the American University College Democrats in Washington, D.C.

It was actually taken at the Sleepless Summer tour stop in Falls Church, VA in July 2003.

I went Schundlers's blog. I tried to post nothing but a link to "separated at birth" in a comment. The site returned the following error message:

"Please do not use profanity in your comments, please edit your comment."

All attempts to link to other sites give that message.
