Bush campaign exploits loophole

The Washington Post has an interesting article showing how the Bush campaign uses a loophole in campaign finance law to augment its advertising capabilities:
President Bush's political team is orchestrating a vastly larger advertising campaign than thought possible under federal law, taking control of millions in Republican Party funds simply by inserting the phrase "our leaders in Congress" in selected commercials.
It's an interesting strategy that shows ressourcefullness on the part of the republicans. Considering Bush's denounciation of 527, will he be OK with democrats using the same tactic as his campaign does?
