I think it was Rush Limbaugh who observed that when liberals are losing, they unintentionally do and say very weird and funny things. If that's true, then John Kerry and the Democratic Party are losing big.
It took just about a day for Kerry and the Dems to blame President Bush for the death of Christopher Reeve. Iowa's socialist senator, Tom "I get to go to the front of the boarding gate line because I'm a senator" Harkin, used the occasion of Reeve's death to attack the president's stem cell research policy. (Conveniently, Harkin failed to note that Bush is the first president to authorize stem cell research.)
John Edwards -- a man who made millions suing the industry which makes medical advances possible -- undertook what Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer called the worst case of political demagoguery he'd ever seen. (Krauthammer is himself paraplegic.) While campaigning in Iowa this week, Edwards declared:
Christopher Reeve just passed away, and America just lost a great champion for this cause, somebody who was a powerful voice for the need to do stem cell research and change the lives of people like him, who have gone through a tragedy. Well, if we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk, get up out of that wheelchair and walk again.
I can only assume that after saying this, Reverend Edwards commenced talking in tongues.
Last Saturday, the Kerry campaign aired a commercial with actor Michael J. Fox lauding Kerry's position on stem cell research and hammering the Bush position. The next day, Kerry blamed Bush for a shortage of flu vaccine.
The election is just 19 days away and our nation is at war. Yet, the Kerry campaign and the Democrats are demagoguing stem cell research and flu vaccine supplies and vowing that a Kerry presidency will engender a mass faith healing of the diseased and crippled.
Clearly, the outcome of this election does not hinge upon stem cell research, vaccine supplies and similar issues. So why is the Kerry campaign and the Democrats devoting so much time and nutty statements about them? The answer is desperation.
The Kerry campaign knows they're not beating the president on the war and other major issues so they're reduced to making ridiculously over-the-top claims on minor issues.
After Kerry loses, maybe Reverend Edwards can cure the Democrats' paralysis.
