Ad disappears from Democratic Web site

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrats dropped an ad that Hispanics had criticized as unfairly depicting illegal immigrants as terrorists.

The ad had disappeared from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's Web site Thursday. A link that had led to the advertisement now leads to a different ad.

Democratic and Republican Hispanics had complained Wednesday about the ad. The 35-second ad questioned GOP homeland security and anti-terrorism policies. It featured images of Osama bin Laden and North Korea's Kim Jong Il and two people scaling a border fence and the words "Feel Safer?"

2. Somebody must have informed the idiots that it was racist and xenophobic.
Surprisingly, one of the idiots must have paid attention and pulled it.
