Hypocrisy

Hypocrisy isn't a terminal condition. But it is interesting to me that Bush fits the bill so well. And DeLay's brushes with medicine have been all over the news lately. Moving away from the Schiavo cases, here is an article on the medical decision making DeLay's family went through.

Read it, I'll be here when you get back.

OK.

Now it was a tragedy. DeLay's father died young. It's too bad.

But DeLay's family got to make that decision without the media circus. If they required judicial arbitration, then it would have occured. How do you think Mr. DeLay would have liked Reagan maing that decision for him? Do you think he would have tolerated it?

Perhaps this analogy isn't apt. But both cases involve withdrawing care and death and decisions. The only ones who can make such decisions are loved ones. Not religious tyrannies.

Also, check out Sullivan's thoughts. They are very well spoken.

I nearly think I'm over this. Soon, the disgust of seeing the media pick over the bones will create more revulsion than sick interest.

Did you notice how fickle the media is? Once the polls came in saying most Americans - even Religious Righters were against reinserting the tube and government intervention, the media started to recede into the woodwork.

Boy were they happy there was an earthquake...
