Cognitive dissonance

We got a flier in the mail today: a joint production of Kathleen Falk (Dane County Executive) and Shirley Abrahamson (Supreme Court) asking for re-election. "Who will stand up for you? They will stand up for you!" says the blurb, with a picture of a young woman and her toddler. The very first thing on their list inside the flier--their first priority--is abortion; aka disposing of kids before they grow to be toddlers. And it is not just first in the list--that single item is longer than the rest of the list of priorities put together. I think the word I'm looking for is "hypocritical."
