Hypocrisy in Florida

I don't mean to harp on the Schiavo thing. It's just that there's basically a media blitzkrieg going on now about it, so it's often in my mind. Good thing there isn't anything important going on in the world right now to distract us from this coverage. Can you imagine what would happen how unimportant this would seem if we were involved in a war or something at the same time?

And the Christian right is being their typical hypocritical selves:

Tom Delay pulls the plug on his father
Robert Schiavo withdrew life support for his mother

I guess the correct term is "culture of life for you people, not me."

Also, there's an article over at DailyKos that makes this point:

My answer is that the radical right hasn't taken a moral position at all.

The radical right has not argued for reinsertion based on a moral position. Instead they are disputing the facts and claiming that Schiavo is not in a persistent vegetative state...

The radical right say there are "factual questions" about Terri's condition and wishes that are open and have not been resolved. They aren't arguing a moral position -- they are playing amateur detectives, marriage counselors and neurologists.
