POLITICS: Steyn on Wellstone

Mark Steyn on the Wellstone memorial. I tend to agree with Kaus on this one - I can forgive the Democrats for the crassness of the memorial, since they were plainly upset and people react to grief in funny ways. But both Steyn and Jonah Goldberg hit on the really cynical bit here, which is the Dems' use of Wellstone's still-warm corpse as a club to beat the Republicans for having the effrontery to do or say anything about the election, as all the while, the Democrats were holding a get-out-the-vote rally, filing lawsuits and having Tom Daschle rip Norm Coleman.
