Bush Coming Out of Your Closet?

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


cheneyad.JPGWhat’s scarier: your overstuffed closet or Bush’s agenda? Manhattan Mini Storage poses that question in a series of political ads posted on Upper West Side phone booths and subway cars.

The ads, one of which features an suitcase-toting elephant, aren’t as racy as they might seem, given the demographic they’re targeting: the UWS was the largest NYC Democratic contributor in 2004.

There must be at least a few GOPers living there, though, judging by the outraged bloggers who apparently don’t like Bush being associated with anyone’s closet.
