Hypocrisy of the day

In the article Schiavo Case Taking on Political Tone (the headline sounds like it's a few days late, doesn't it?), House Majority Leader Tom DeLay is quoted as saying:

"The point is the other side has figured out how to win and defeat the conservative movement," he said after mentioning Schiavo, "and that is to go after people personally, charge them with frivolous charges and link that up with all these do-gooder organizations funded by George Soros and then get the national media on their side.

"That whole syndicate that they have going on right now is for one purpose and one purpose only, and that's to destroy the conservative movement. It's to destroy conservative leaders."

And the conservatives would never even think to do that to liberal leaders (*ahem*Lewinski-gate*ahem*), would they?

The only way to stand Tom DeLay is by remembering that he's a total twerp who thinks he's important. He's not.

The Schiavo case is important only in that it has revealed to just what lengths the screaming right wing religionists are willing to go, and how far they are willing to try to bend law and the Constitution for their own ends.

Note, of course, that if Schiavo had been a poor Hispanic unwed mother left in a coma after a botched abortion, no one would have gone to such lengths to try to keep her empty shell "alive".

DeLay is walking a very thin, shaky line with all his alleged ethics blunders. He may not last too much longer, and I'm sure he has no career path to higher office. Doesn't mean he won't be a pain in the ass until he's gone, of course.

I fear your last sentence is absolutely right.
