One of the more disgusting sidelights in the already-disgusting tax cut argument that reached its disgusting denouement yesterday was the way that congressional Republicans hitched their lame duck stance on not allowing any legislation to advance unless the first order of business was preventing a 3% tax hike for the country's highest earners.  As Jon Stewart masterfully demonstrated on last night's Daily Show, one welcome side effect of this lockstep obstinacy is that it exposes the rank hypocrisy that's epitomized the GOP's perpetual use and abuse of 9/11 for political purposes in the near-decade since that day's tragic events:
