Laughable GOP hypocrisy on Democratic video

News & Politics

In an act that would be as hysterical as Jack Abramoff lamenting the undue influence of lobbyists in Washington, the Republican party and their brain-dead shills in the right-wing blog world are all atwitter today over a video being run on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) web site. It seems those sensitive souls are upset over the fact that a tiny part of the video shows flag-draped coffins coming back from Iraq.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is aghast.

"DEMOCRAT DISGRACE," screams their web site. "New DCCC Fundraising Ad Uses Images Of The Coffins Of Dead U.S. Soldiers."

"It makes my stomach turn to see national Democrats so blatantly exploit the sacrifices made by the men and women of our armed forces," says National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman Tom Reynolds (R-NY).

"Well, frankly, I think this is the most tasteless gesture I've seen in my time in politics," whines Rep. Geoff Davis (R-KY).

Wow. Where to start with this?
