THAT was offensive

I hadn't really wanted to delve back into the R convention, but this caught my eye. I didn't see the video that night, I tuned in only for McThuselah. If I had, I probably would have been livid.

While the Democratic candidates this cycle treated 9/11 and those who died that day with reverence and respect, the Republican candidates (Guiliani and McCain especially) have continuously used those people and their loved ones for political gain in the most shameful and offensive manner possible. This video should not have shocked me the way it did... I should be accustomed to offensive, unAmerican ploys from the Republicans. But it did.

To my core, as an American, this offended me deeply.
