We're at war

And that means that sometimes you have to dig up innocent victims and serve them up as red meat to the hysterical hoards who can only be motivated by the most craven appeals to their bigotry.

But of course Olbermann would rather we leave the dead buried and underutilized.

Elsewhere: some blue-state newspaper chimes in:

One of the most enduring taboos in American politics, the airing of graphic images from the September 11 attacks in a partisan context, died today. It was nearly seven years old.

The informal prohibition, which had been occasionally threatened by political ads in recent years, was pronounced dead at approximately 7:40 CST, when a video aired before delegates at the Republican National Convention included slow-motion footage of a plane striking the World Trade Center, the towers' subsequent collapse, and smoke emerging from the Pentagon.

The September 11 precedent was one of the few surviving campaign-season taboos. It is survived by direct comparisons of one's opponents to Hitler.
