Tom DeLay: Pure Evil

I did pay some attention to the Terry Schiavo case, and could not for the life of me figure out why Republicans, who at some point in the past used to believe in small government and state's rights, were trying to strong-arm the state of Florida's court system. Senator Frist's "interview diagnosis" was beyond the pale.
Dr. Frist, in his floor statement on March 17, said that after viewing videotape of Ms. Schiavo, it was clear she was responsive. "To be able to make a diagnosis of persistent vegetative state - which is not brain dead; it is not coma; it is a specific diagnosis and typically takes multiple examinations over a period of time because you are looking for responsiveness - I have looked at the video footage," Dr. Frist said. "Based on the footage provided to me, which was part of the facts of the case, she does respond."
Can't the AMA revoke his Medical license?

And the recent relevation that Schiavo's brain was withered and untreatable should provoke shame from those congressman that would say absolutely anything - no matter how ridiculous - to advance their agenda.

Who could I possibly be talking about?
"Ms. Schiavo's condition, I believe, has been misrepresented by the media," Mr. DeLay said on March 20. "Terri Schiavo is not brain dead; she talks and she laughs, and she expresses happiness and discomfort. Terri Schiavo is not on life support."
