The family states that this ad is "insulting to the memory of Robert Byrd." Half of everything in West Virginia is named after Robert Byrd. That's insulting to the U.S. taxpayers that footed the bill for his pork barrel politics and his narcissism.

There must be more to tie the two politicians together than a photo-op at the dead-Byrd service. Byrd’s family may be sorry they prodded the GOP to get some substance to the lame ad.

Notice crAP/Yahoo doesn’t publish the photo in question. Just supposed to take their word for it that they agree the photo in question is in poor taste.

Byrd was a pretty good fiddle player, he should have stuck to that!

I think the underlining issue here is: they want the ad pulled because any picture with Obama is poison to Democrats. Has nothing to do with Byrd.

Insulting the memory of a statist Grand Kleagle? That is hard to do.

what's the big deal? who would of even known where this partial picture (that was flashed for about one second) even came from, if the Byrd family didn't make such a stink about it?

“insulting to the memory of Robert Byrd”

I guess his KKK days didn't embarrass the family since they kept their freaking mouths shut about that. He was an insult to the entire country for much of what he did during his tenure in the Senate.

***BYRD: A CRAZY OLD FOOL DEMOCRAT WHO SUGGESTS THE BEHEADING THE PRESIDENT***

02.10.10

Wiping drool from his mouth, Democrat Senator Byrd raved on laughing about GWB being the Commander and Chief, and saying...”you know where that came from, Comander and Chief?...from Charles the first....you know what happened to him, he was beheaded”

The ad does not mention Byrd. The ad has nothing to do with Byrd. One photo shows Joe Manchin sitting next to Obama. That's the great insult to the Byrd family?

Presumably if the photo of Manchin and Obama had been taken inside a college lecture hall, that would have demonstrated Raese's lack of respect for education. Had the photo been taken at a church wedding, it would have proved Raese's contempt for religion and marriage.

Nonsensical whining by idiots.

My, my. So touchy!

The DemonRATs are in high dudgeon about everything.

They find a reason to get emotional or litigious for every, single political move by their opposition.

I think it’s high time they received ample doses of their own medicine.

Everything Robert Byrd did was an insult to this country. But, wait, he only donned that sheet to get elected...so according to the MSM it was okay.

Complaining about the one second image of a bunch of marxists at aklansman’s funeral shows how scared they are. This race could end up being another Boxer/Reid/Fiengold?Murray race.

After paying the salary of Robert Byrd for all these years, it is fair to say that we, the US taxpayers, own all the rights to his likeness and we can do with it what we please.
