WASHINGTON - President Bush on Thursday urged the country to honor Terri Schiavo's memory by working to "build a culture of life"
SHOW TRIAL! SHOW TRIAL!
while House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said "the men responsible for this" will be called to account.
WHEN CONGRESS PASSES A LAW, THE JOB OF A JUDGE IS TO ENFORCE IT, NOT ASK A BUNCH OF STUPID QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT IT CONTRAVENES OTHER LAWS OR VIOLATES THE CONSTITUTION OR WHATEVER
DeLay appeared to condemn judges who at both the state and federal level declined to order that Schiavo be kept alive artificially.
OH, THERE WILL BE A RECKONING! JUST, YOU KNOW, NOT NOW
"This loss happened because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most, and that will change," the Texas Republican said. "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior, but not today."
WITH GOD'S HELP, NO ONE WILL EVER BE IN A COMA AGAIN
"Today we grieve, we pray, and we hope to God this fate never befalls another."
UNLESS THEY'RE POOR, OR BLACK
Bush said that "the strong have a duty to protect the weak."
I HAD TO LOOK THESE WORDS UP
"I appreciate the example of grace and dignity they have displayed at a difficult time," Bush said.
NONEXISTENT THOUGH IT MAY HAVE BEEN
"Terri's will to live should serve as an inspiration and impetus for action," House Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner said.
DEMOCRATS ELECT NOT TO UPSET THE PUBLIC BY EXPRESSING VIEWS CONTRARY TO THOSE OF RULING PARTY
By contrast, in the hours immediately after Schiavo's death, Democrats — who have treaded carefully in the case for fear of getting clobbered on the "values" issues that hurt them in last year's elections — mostly kept a low profile.
