Maureen Dowd on DeLay

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd calls out DeLay:

Mr. DeLay moved yesterday to file a friend of the court brief with the Supreme Court asking that Ms. Schiavo's feeding tube be restored while the federal court is deciding what to do. But as he exploits this one sad case, Mr. DeLay has voted to slash Medicaid by $15 billion, denying money to care for poor people in nursing homes, some on feeding tubes.

Mr. DeLay made his personal stake clear at a conference last Friday organized by the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian group. He said that God had brought Terri Schiavo's struggle to the forefront "to help elevate the visibility of what's going on in America." He defined that as "attacks against the conservative movement, against me and against many others."

So it's not about her crisis at all. It's about his crisis.


  • What would we do without the insight of Queen Maureen? She's brilliant. If you're interested I've obtained a copy of Weekend at Bernie's Part 4 starring Bill Frist & Tom DeLay:

    Welcome to the Theocratic States of America. Amen.

  • Hell, why wait? I say kick 'em as they're going down.

    Tom "Taped" Delay...

    Guess the poor fella shoulda mixed in a bit more straw for those clay feet of his.
