  Tasteless Politics

There's so many bad things on both sides of the presidential campaign that it's hard to choose which side disgusts me more. Neither of the camps have stuck to the moral high ground, and we are practically swimming in mud.

I actually liked John Edwards when I first heard him speak, and thought he seemed a much more viable candidate than John Kerry. I was very disappointed to hear his speech about Stem Cell research.

"We will do stem cell research," he vowed. "We will stop juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other debilitating diseases. America just lost a great champion for this cause in Christopher Reeve. People like Chris Reeve will get out of their wheelchairs and walk again with stem cell research."

I like to try to think the best of people and give them the benefit of the doubt. I hope that this was a misstep on his part. I hope he meant to say "With stem cell research, we have a chance to stop such diseases like juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, and Alzheimers so that we wont have to continue losing such great people as Christopher Reeves."

Without the benefit of the doubt, the speech appeared to make Kerry and Edwards messianic figures that used the death of great person for their own ends.

It just left a bad taste in my mouth....
