Ways to use your loved one’s death to enhance your life

Michael Schiavo, husband of Terri, has started a PAC and is in Connecticut stumping for leftist Ned Lamont. He just wanted peace for his wife, nothing political about it.

Meanwhile, Cindy Sheehan has used insurance money she received from son Casey’s death to purchase property in Crawford, Texas. Allah has the run-down including the very interesting interaction between Ma Sheehan and the man who had been letting the crazies use his property to protest.

So, are implying that Schiavo pulled the plug on Terri for some political platform?

Karol:
What is wrong with Schiavo supporting a candidate opposed to Lieberman? Lieberman supported the federal government meddling in his handling of his wife. I do not know if Schiavo was political before politicians started meddling in his family’s affairs, but one can hardly blame him for being politicized by the whole affair.
And why is Lamont a leftist? He seems like a typical liberal Democrat to me. In fact, the only major difference that I can see between the two candidates is the Iraq War, a war most Americans think was a mistake. If anything, Lamont is more mainstream than Lieberman on that issue.

No, but it did feel like some kind of political stand.
Dan, if most Americans think the war was a mistake, why did they re-elect George W., architect of said war?
Dawn, never heard of Schiavo’s parents doing that but it’s disgusting.

Karol:
People voted on more than just Iraq in the 2004 election. Kerry had a lot of unpopular positions and could not even express a coherent position on Iraq.
But according to the latest Harris Poll, Americans think the Iraq War was not worth it by a margin of 2 to 1. I would suspect that among Democratic primary voters, the war is even less unpopular. Lieberman is doing a poor job of representing his own party on this issue and the Democratic grassroots activists are taking a stand.
I only wish Republicans could generate some grassroots primary challenges, too.

It’s called a blind spot.

Again, I hadn’t heard about that. If true I proclaim loudly and proudly that it’s disgusting. What more do you want?

Dan has a point about Kerry’s lack of a position. And Karol, that was two years ago and people’s perceptions seem to have changed on the war and the president. Ask Mr. Steele over in Maryland. If the results in November are as bad as I think they will be (narrowing the gaps in the Senate and House and taking the lead in the statehouses) I think even some of the GOP 2008 presidentiables will be treating Bush like a leper.
“I only wish Republicans could generate some grassroots primary challenges, too.”
There are a few going on. Besides the obvious one for RI US Senate, we have a few in Kansas where conservatives are trying to throw out moderates in some state house races (for the record, I think the conservative will win the Insurance race and lose the State race). There was a nifty race in Utah where alas a true conservative who put America first lost to an open borders traitor of an incumbent.
