 Christmas Comes Early for Bush and GOP Contributors at Americans' Expense

      The MoveOn.org Voter Fund has launched a national cable network television and newspaper ad buy exposing "The most outrageous Christmas list in America," - a laundry list of early Christmas gifts from George W. Bush and the Republican Congress to their special interest friends and contributors in Washington, snuck into the proposed $820 billion omnibus bill.

      "So who does President Bush think is naughty and nice?" asks the ad that appears in today's Washington Post. Both the national TV spot-which runs Tuesday through Thursday on cable stations-and the print ad challenge Bush Administration giveaways hidden in the omnibus bill: clearance for employers to strip 8 million workers of overtime pay, an FCC rules change that will permit epic media consolidation, and the renewal of no-bid contracts to Halliburton and other Administration-friendly companies.

 The TV ad can be received tomorrow on the following satellite coordinates:
