On the same day that Howard Dean says Democrats aren’t listening to values voters in red states who want to vote for them, he tells a group of homosexual activists that the Democrats plan to use use the Terri Schiavo case for political advantage. Here’s what he said: “The issue is: Are we going to live in a theocracy where the highest powers tell us what to do? Or are we going to be allowed to consult our own high powers when we make very difficult decisions?” Isn’t politicizing the issue what the Democrats have been accusing the Republicans of doing? Apparently Dean has been too busy with his forked tongue to actually listen. And what “high powers” is he talking about?
