The doctor is off his meds again:
Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Friday that his party would wield the Terri Schiavo case against Republicans in the 2006 and 2008 elections, but for now needed to stay focused battling President Bush on Social Security.
“We’re going to use Terri Schiavo later on,” Dean said of the brain-damaged Floridian who died last month after her feeding tube was removed amid a swarm of political controversy.
The hypocrisy flows like blood from a stuck hog.
A few short weeks ago Dean called congressional and White House intervention in the Schiavo case, “political grandstanding.” It is now perrmissable, I assume. Now Dean and his tribe of like minded [Dim]ocrats plan to utilize a dead woman for political gain in the 2006 mid-term elections.
“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?’ “
What was Dean’s fellow [Dim}ocrat, Sen. Kerry, quote? “Bring it on!”
Well, go ahead Dr., lead your tribe down that road. Produce your ’06 campaign ad and watch how fast these quotes are pulled from a thousand blog archives and lay waste to any aspirations you have on gaining House or Senate seats.
“Grandstand,” indeed. The word should be entered in Roget’s Thesaurus as Synonymous with Democrat.
