Bad Idea By Howard Dean

I read this post on Powerline and I'm actually somewhat speechless. The article linked in the Powerline post quotes Dean as saying:
"We're going to use Terri Schiavo later on," Dean said...
Like Powerline, I'm confused. They probably put it best:
...why is it it that when a minor Republican staffer wrote that the Schiavo case was a "great political issue," it was a scandal that was reported in every newspaper in America, whereas, when the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee says, "We're going to use Terri Schiavo" in the 2006 and 2008 elections, the response is a yawn? I'm sure there must be a reason why Dean's comment is different, but offhand I can't think what it is.
Personally I wish both sides would just let this issue go away and focus on more appropriate and more relevant things.
