So the moonbats, the LLL, the Media elite went nuts when that memo written by a staffer was erroneously passed onto Tom Harkin vis vis junior member Martinez regarding the "talking points" on the NOW DEAD Schiavo...........................that was a "HORROR, a TRAVESTY"..........but Howard Dean using Terri's death to his politcal ends, well thats cool right? This from my favorite boy Taranto
Uses for a Dead Lady
"We're going to use Terri Schiavo later on," Howard Dean told a gay-rights group in West Hollywood, Calif., the other day--a creepy pronouncement even by the standards of 21st-century Democrats. (Yeah, we know, the Republican "talking points memo" was just as bad--or rather it would have been had the author been the head of the party.) The Democratic National Committee's chairman, quoted in the Los Angeles Times, elaborates:
"This is going to be an issue in 2006, and it's going to be an issue in 2008," Dean told about 200 people at a gay rights group's breakfast in West Hollywood, "because we're going to have an ad with a picture of Tom DeLay saying, 'Do you want this guy to decide whether you die or not? Or is that going to be up to your loved ones?' "
Hmm, do we detect a theme here? From Friday's USA Today:
Dean says his party needs to do more to appeal to voters who have been lost because of unease over "values," including people who oppose abortion. . . .
Democrats get "caught" in defending abortion, he said. "Well, there's nobody who's pro-abortion, not Democratic or Republican. What we want to debate is who gets to choose: (House Majority Leader) Tom DeLay and the federal politicians? Or does a woman get to make up her own mind?"
So the Dems are going to appeal to people who oppose abortion by using the same old slogan of "Who decides?"--a slogan that is persuasive only to those who are already persuaded that there is nothing more to the question than this. Dean seems to think that somehow throwing Tom DeLay into the mix is going to relieve voters of whatever qualms they have about abortion.
