Not Aware Of All Internet Traditions

This AFSCME video has been making the rounds on YouTube for a long time. I've posted it on multiple occasions. I know that taking it out of the joke viral email forward and into the political arena changes things a bit, but are union leaders really upset that Eric Cantor sent over the video as a "response" to their ad blitz targeting neo-Hooverist GOP leaders?

I think the unions are just being opportunistic. And obviously, Cantor and the GOP's constant pro-family, anti-obscenity crusades shows a bit of hypocrisy here. But it's a funny video. And an Internet fave. Maybe I'm being thick, but I don't see the problem.

...Cantor's spokesperson had to apologize, which is fun. It's a rare Democratic hissy fit that worked. Imagine that.
