WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Congressional Republicans attacked Democrats on Thursday for an Internet video featuring flag-draped coffins of U.S. casualties in Iraq, saying it "crossed the line" by exploiting troops and politicizing the war.
Ed.: Hey, Olbermann! How many days has it been since Bush-lite suited up, sat second seat, and flew onto an aircraft bearing the victory banner?
UPDATE (07/20/06): It seems like just yesterday that the National Republican Congressional Committee had itself up in arms over a Democratic Web ad that showed flag-draped coffins in the belly of a military transport plane. So we're sure it's only a matter of time now before we'll get an e-mail from NRCC chairman Tom Reynolds condemning a new TV ad that relies on an image of the World Trade Center burning on 9/11.
Or maybe not. See, the new ad is different. It comes from a Republican, Ohio Sen. Mike DeWine. And then there's this: While the flag-draped coffins in the Democrats' ad were real, the 9/11 photo in DeWine's ad is not.
Ed.:Can the hypocrisy be anymore blatant? You can't make this stuff up!
