Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is.....

Imagine my surprise when, after using the example of Bush's 2004 campaign ad showing an image 9/11 to chide some on the right yesterday for being a bit hypocritical with their outrage at the DCCC's new video, I read that Erick at RedState has used the exact same example....to charge Democrats of hypocrisy.

Let me see if I have this right. If you were against Bush using images of 9/11 in 2004 but aren't opposed to using images of flag-draped coffins in 2006, you're a hypocrite. So far so good. But if you weren't opposed to Bush using images of 9/11 in 2004 but are now up in arms over the use of an image of a flag-draped coffin, doesn't that also make you guilty of hypocrisy?

So unless Erick was opposed to Bush's use of the 9/11 image back in 2004, he's made a very effective case against himself, no?
