The Candidate as Ghoul

Boston Globe, on El Presidente's attempt to wrap himself in dead flesh:

"After three days of suspended political activity, the Bush campaign began openly incorporating Ronald Reagan's death into its reelection message yesterday, revamping its website to give Reagan a dominant role and distributing official campaign letters that invoke the former president."

Meanwhile, the homage to Ronnie doesn't go so far as to actually listen to the good sense of Nancy Reagan, who recently called on the president to allow stem-cell research. The White House has already rebuffed Nancy on that one, and this morning even Laura Pro-Choice Bush was in the news saying she can't go along with Mrs. Reagan either.
