The Dems pulled the offensive ad

RE: Blackfive's Does This Video Offend You?  and Uncle Jimbo's The Democrats Are Dead to Me

The news is that the Democrats pulled the offensive commercial:

...Democrats had featured the video ad for nearly two weeks on the DCCC Web site where it had gone largely unnoticed until Republicans began objecting to it this week. On Thursday, more than a dozen Republicans, many with military backgrounds, called on DCCC Chairman Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., to apologize. Democratic Reps. John Spratt of South Carolina and Chet Edwards of Texas asked Emanuel to pull or alter the ad.

"We're moving to another major effort that we're highlighting on our Web site," DCCC spokesman Bill Burton said.

In South Carolina, Spratt's Republican challenger, state Rep. Ralph Norman, commended the removal. It was "the right thing to do for the state, country and especially the brave men and women who serve in our military," said Norman's spokesman, Nathan Hollifield.

No mention that it was the right thing to do or an apology from the Democrats though...just "moving to another major effort." 

Perhaps that next effort won't include using the memories and sacrifices of our troops for such obvious political maneuvering.
