Are Americans actually beginning realizing that Congress is under the control of people who are either totally nuts, or dedicated to pleasing people who are totally nuts?
I hope so.
Open Letter from 11th Hour Coalition to save Terri Schiavo's life to President Bush and Gov. Bush
..In the wake of the failure of the courts and legislatures to save Terri Schiavo from a national experiment with Euthanasia, we are here at the White House and at the Governor's Mansion in Tallahassee because there are yet two men in this country that can save Terri Schiavo's life; President George W. Bush and Governor Jeb Bush.
As citizens and people of faith-we implore, beg, nay... insist, that you brothers, so distinguished by their singular accomplishments and political leadership-use the Constitutional powers of their respective offices to interpose yourselves and deploy the police services at your disposal and take Terri Schiavo into your protective custody, direct that her food and water be restored to her, and save her alive while the lawyers debate arcane matters of jurisdiction and jurisprudence. For God's sake, take pity, have mercy, and please do not delay in saving Terri Schiavo's life...
Actually, things are better that I had thought. As I mentioned below, the Republicans have seriously overreached; as I mentioned here, Americans are starting to seriously wonder about these people; and , in addition, Tom Delay has long operated by flying under the radar, and he can't anymore: most people have been barely aware that he existed, and he has allowed Hastert to be the face of the Congressional Republicans, despite largely being the guy who was actually running things. But now, people are suddenly aware that a total loonie extremist is the guy the Republicans have chosen to be their leader.
