Tom DeLay.....somehow finds the balls compare himself to Terri Shiavo

Wow! Just when you think that Washington was done using Terri Shiavo as their political ragdoll, here comes our moral majority leader with what has to be the most asinine(sp?actual word?)statement I've heard in a while.

"It is more than just Terri Schiavo. This is a critical issue for people in this position, and it is also a critical issue to fight that fight for life, whether it be euthanasia or abortion. I tell you, ladies and gentlemen, one thing God has brought to us is Terri Schiavo to elevate the visibility of what's going on in America. That Americans would be so barbaric as to pull a feeding tube out of a person that is lucid and starve them to death for two weeks. I mean, in America that's going to happen if we don't win this fight."

That's just an excerpt from what this idiot was blathering about in front of a gathering for the Family Research Council in Washington. He went on defend the poor conservative Christian movement that is being suppressed by "the man" i.e. liberal media. The irony here is sickening. But who's to argue with the man when Jesus himself is on his side:

"That law we're trying to repeal. It's very difficult to do that, but the point is, when they can knock out a leader, then no other leader will step forward for a while, because they don't want to go through the same thing. If they go after and get a pastor, then other pastors shrink from what they should be doing. It forces Christians back into the church. That's what's going on in America. The world is too bad and I'm going to get inside this building and I'm not going to play in the world. That's not what Christ asked us to do."

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and bet Christ wouldn't want us dangling a long-dying woman's right to a peaceful, natural passage for your own political gain. I mean, I apparently don't have the buddy-buddy relationship with Jesus that the likes of GW and Tommy boy do, but I do have an idea of what good Christian ideals are. Since when is dying a natural death such a bad thing anyway? Maybe I'll call Tom and ask him to talk to Jesus about it......
