New campaign meme: "Vote Republican or DIE"

Actually, this is the strategy they've been using since 9/12/01. But never has it been stated as explicitly as this...

Yep, it's come to this: If you don't vote for the pro-war candidate in your district, you will die. That's literally the message in a new ad that a conservative think tank, The Center For Security Policy, has now released in time for the fifth anniversary of Sept. 11. The ad shows images of the burning Twin Towers and Americans held hostage and concludes by flashing on the screen: "Vote as if your life depends on it. Because it does."

TPM Cafe has the video. The ad is not currently scheduled to run in Minnesota, but we can expect something similar (though perhaps phrased a bit differently) from the Bachmann campaign.
