Congress gone mad

I was going to write about the utter insanity that is the Terry Schiavo situation. But Dahlia Lithwick at Slate has done such a superior job, I'll let her do the talking. I urge you to read it and consider seriously the issues she brings up. The foremost one being the Republicans trampling all over the concept of federalism, a bedrock of the American legal and political system. And the frightening monster that is "the culture of life."

On a separate note, now that Republicans are spending us into massive debt, ignoring federalism and engaging in nation-building, I humbly request they forfeit the name "Republican" and call themselves something else. Since they have completely abandoned every single political concept that Republicans used to hold. I hear the "Know-Nothing" party label is available. Seems like a good fit...
