Where's the Democratic outrage?

Go read this Tomasky piece in The American Prospect. He brings up the point that Democrats are to quick to get upset over comments like that from Sen. Santorum while ignoring real outrages like the GOP's announcement that they will hold their convention in NYC to coincide with the 3rd anniversary of 9/11. While I have applauded Gov. Dean for taking on Santorum I also think that Tomasky has a point: why HAVEN'T the Democrats been howling at this announcement? Why hasn't any of the candidates for the Democratic nomination, Dean included, gotten before the camera and denounced this blatant attempt to politically profit on the death of 3000 Americans? I asked this question back when this was first announced and I am still asking it now. Why won't the Democrats express outrage at actions like this? Could it be that they really don't understand what an outrage it is? What a terrible thought that is.
