You know I'm as partisan as the next guy... no strike that... I'm for more partisan than most. But why the HELL is Terri Schiavo a partisan issue???
It is simple. Some people want to take away her food and let her die and the other side does not. Why on EARTH do the Democrats do this dumb shit???
Schiavo Kin Wants Feeding Tube Reinserted
PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) - Hanging their hopes on a last-minute compromise in Congress, Terri Schiavo's parents notified her hospice to prepare to have her feeding tube reinserted on Sunday, her third day without food or water.
Yet it now appears that move could not happen before Monday, at the earliest.
A bill aimed at prolonging the severely brain-damaged woman's life was delayed in Washington when House Democrats blocked a voice vote, forcing Republicans to scramble on Palm Sunday for a quorum of 218 members. A roll call vote could be held as early as 12:01 a.m. Monday, House leaders said.
So if you are a Democrat your value system works like this....
Unborn Child? Kill It.
Sick Woman? Kill it.
Convicted Murder on death row? Do every thing you can do to save it!
And yet the Democrats WONDER why the American people don't vote for them. It's because they are screwed in the head.. that's why!
Why don't for once in their lives the Democrats just sit down and shut the hell up!?!?!?!

Update Let me add what annoys me most... It is not like the Republicans don't have the votes, they do... The Dems know that so they are now playing procedural games to try to kill this woman. Why is having this woman die so important to the Democrats that they will go to extraordinary lengths to see it happen?
I'll tell you why... to the Democrats, Terry Schiavo is being sacrificed on the alter of abortion.
