Culture wars continue

I have never witnessed such grandstanding as as I have this weekend regarding the Schiavo issue. Michael Schiavo could not have stated it better... but Michael got it wrong on Delay. He is not pandering for votes but is pandering for his life. This is nothing more than a ploy to deflect attention away from his ethical problems. As for the rest of's all politically motivated no matter how they try to spin it.

Weary after an emotional visit with his wife, Schiavo said he is astonished that politicians want to interfere in such a private matter.

"Instead of worrying about my wife, who was granted her wishes by the state courts the past seven years, they should worry about the pedophiles killing young girls," Schiavo said, referring to a local case. "Why doesn't Congress worry about people not having health insurance? Or the budget? Let's talk about all the children who don't have homes."

He said U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who is leading a charge to extend Terri Schiavo's life, is a "little slithering snake" pandering for votes.
