The right-wingers are apparently bursting blood vessels over the DCCC ad below:

Ohhh! Those nasty Democrats! They actually mentioned the cost of war! How mean of them not to let us sanitize it and whitewash it.

The fact that the right reacts to THAT ad as though it's somehow "unfair" to them shows what a pack of whining little children they are.

As Nitpicker (linked above) points out, they think they own the dead.

From what the links say, it's not so much the full content of this ad, but the use of images of 9/11 and dead soldiers (I was going to say 'flag draped coffins' then decided isn't it time to just call a spade a spade?)
To me, it seems as though they (the GOP) are offended at the sheer effrontery of the Dems using 9/11 at all.
The September 11, 2001 attacks have been the cornerstone of every GOP commercial, political fundraiser, and election since that time. Apparently they dislike the fact that they do not hold exclusive rights to it.
Too bad. It was a tragic day which belongs to all of us, and has thus far been trotted out like a sad show pony whenever the GOP wants to get it's way.
It's about time the Dems started showing some sac, I hope it continues.
