As far as the other comments complaining about someone's suffering being used as a campaign tool, see deltaguys statement.
If it was the offensive one with the picture, that sort of thing is uncalled for. Kindly be more respectful if you wish to disagree.
If it was the statement afterwards, it's naive to think 527 that corporations are totally independent of the campaigns they support. The Party or the Campaign would not (I hope) have directly supported it as this would be a violation of the law, but I find it hard to believe these groups are not talking to the campaign at some level.
I'm sorry if feeling like I want to throw up watching this commercial offends you and NW747400, but I have met too many people who lost friends and loved ones on 9/11 to condone the cheapening and denegration of their pain by using victims and their families as political pawns.
