Zogby Steps Up Pressure is building (link courtesy of Ryan Lizza) on President Bush to pull his controversial campaign ad.

No--not the one with the firefighters. A new ad released earlier today!

Here's what James Zogby (yes, that Zogby) had to say:

James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, urged Bush to withdraw one of the new ads because it illustrates the section on terrorism with a picture of an olive-skinned man with bushy eyebrows.

"If they wanted to put Osama bin Laden up there that's fine, but using just a face stereotypes," Zogby said.

I don't have my scorecard handy, but I think that makes the Bushies two for two.

Time to circle the wagons?
