So for all their posturing and complaining, the leadership only got 53 of their fellow Democrats to vote for Terry Schiavo’s death sentence. The vast majority of the Democrats were smart enough to stay away from this one. 112 Democrats refused to vote at all.
This was brilliant. For 53 votes, they tar their whole party with the stench of trying to kill this poor woman. They define tone-deaf. And Howard Dean calls Republicans “brain dead.”
Which Dem is going to take the blame for this bright idea?
