Schiavo to be Democrat Campaign Prop...

Still harboring resentment at not being able to use flag-draped coffins on the campaign trail, the Democrats are determined not to be denied their morbid props in 2006 and 2008.

Back on Your Heads!


The new voice of the Democrat Party, Howard Dean, has announced that Democrat candidates will be resurrecting Terry Schiavo in the 2006 and 2008 elections.


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. - L.A. Times

I guess Mr. Dean wants to capitalize on the great history of successes highly polarizing and divisive issues has garnered for the Democrat Party. Or... it might be that Terry Schiavo will be one of those issues, like gun control, abortion, and gay marriage, that Democrat candidates don't want to talk about.
