I'm So Glad We've All Decided That Terri Schiavo Is Not a Political Issue

The media freaked over the crude political talking points drawn up by Mel Martinez's moronic aid. Think they'll be similarly offended by Dr. Howard "Genius" Dean's statement that he intends to use Terri as a political weapon?:

"'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.

"Dean, who has called congressional intervention in the Schiavo case 'political grandstanding,' singled out House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) for his leading role in the matter.

"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?'"


The former presidential candidate said he had purposely avoided emphasizing the Schiavo case in recent weeks because Democrats needed "message discipline."

Three quick points:

1) Hypocrisy.

2) Media double-standards and bias.

3) Howard Dean is an f'n' moron, and we're gonna have some fun the next several years.
