Poor taste is a nice way to put it

On the Bush reelect team's decision to use 9/11 footage in ads:

"With all due respect, I just completely disagree, and I believe the vast majority of the American people will as well," Karen Hughes, a Bush campaign adviser, told "The Early Show" on CBS. "September 11th was not just a distant tragedy. It's a defining event for the future of our country. ... Obviously, all of us mourn and grieve for the victims of that terrible day, but September 11 fundamentally changed our public policy in many important ways, and I think it's vital that the next president recognize that."

Thanks for that - I'd almost forgotten about 9/11 completely. Thanks, GWB and Karen Hughes, for making sure I don't forget the importance of that momentous day. What would I do without Bush?
