Absolut reconquers America

Does This Image Offend You?This Absolut ad is causing quite a stir around the internet.

Now it is worth mentioning the design is not something Absolut cooked up, but an old map from before the Mexican-American War.
Comment:  Absolut pulled this ad and apologized after many Americans protested.

It's not directly a Native issue itself, but it raises some Native issues. Read the comments on this posting, including my comment (#22).

I don't get it. I think it would make sense for Corona or Dos Equis. But Vodka brings Russia to mind.
