The DCCC can suck it

By now most everyone has heard about the DCCC's repellant decision to use pictures of war dead for fundraising purposes. I'm not going to bother saying how I feel about this. Uncle Jimbo already summed it up pretty well.

As usual, the Democrats think there is absolutely nothing wrong with this.

Let's take a little trip back down memory lane, though.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The White House approves of the Republican congressional campaign committee's plan to use a photograph of President Bush taken on September 11 as part of a GOP fundraising effort, a move Democrats call "nothing short of grotesque."

The White House photograph shows Bush aboard Air Force One, talking to Vice President Dick Cheney hours after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

I just want to make sure I understand. Using a picture of the president on a plane talking on the phone for fundraising; "Nothing short of grotesque." Using pictures of soldiers who gave their lives for us; perfectly ok. I just want to be clear.
