Pelosi's implausible deniability
Nancy Pelosi is now claiming that the flag-draped coffin ad the DCCC sent out with a fund-raising letter wasn't really about fund-raising:
It is not a solicitation, it is not a fundraising solicitation. As far as the Republicans are concerned, politicizing the war, if it weren't so tragic, it would almost be funny with Karl Rove going around the country talking about politicizing the Iraq war. ... I don't know why they are making an issue of this except that, again, it speaks truth to power about what is happening in Iraq.So Pelosi lies about the ad, and then blames Republicans for "politicizing the war." AllahPundit is exactly right when he says they're just stupid:
If they’re willing to sow the wind with death photos, so be it. They’ll reap the whirlwind when the backlash comes.The Democrats were stupid to think they could get away with that trick, and they are even stupider to think they can lie, and act like innocent victims, and blame everything on Republicans. The American people can see through cheap lies like that, and the Democrats only hurt themselves with such dishonest tactics.

The DCCC talked about moving onto another subject, but they aren't fooling anyone -- it got chased off the air.
