An Appalling Act of Exploitation

If you watched the early coverage of the RNC08 Convention Thursday night, you were able to see one of the most appalling acts of exploitation I've ever witnessed on TV.

Prior to Senator Lindsey Graham's speech, the convention aired a "Tribute to 9/11," which was essentially a propagandist reminder that we are locked in mortal combat with "those that attacked us on 9/11." It used images that we all remember painfully for solely political purposes. This was not a tribute, a remembrance, an homage - it was an exploitation of fear. And it was wrong. I will not post the video or link to it. It's on YouTube, find it. Democrats, please don't consider this as an opening to do the same.

I'm appalled and ashamed. I will meditate for the Light tonight over this.
