Brewtown Politico

Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


As you're no doubt aware, Terri Schiavo passed away today after being off her feeding tube for 13 days.

Unfortunately, her death is not going to stop right-wing reactionaries from using her as a political football. Guys like Rep. Tom DeLay are already using it to distract people from focusing on his acts of corruption.

The fact that the majority of Americans have seen through all the noise provides some hope. Also, conservative commentators like Joe Scarborough have looked like complete fools as they have gotten called out either not knowing the facts or intentionally misleading their audience on the case.

By the way, for those who would have us believe this whole case turned out the way it did because of the rulings of liberal activist judges, several of the judges involved were appointed by Republicans including President George W. Bush himself. This minority faction of powerful interests has no shame.
