Sounds Like Someone Needs
to Enlarge His Vision

In most states, humping an unresponsive patient like this would be considered a felony:

"One thing that God has brought to us is Terri Schiavo, to help elevate the visibility of what is going on in America," Mr. DeLay told a conference organized by the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian group. . . .

"This is exactly the issue that is going on in America, of attacks against the conservative movement, against me and against many others," Mr. DeLay said.

Mr. DeLay complained that "the other side" had figured out how "to defeat the conservative movement," by waging personal attacks, linking with liberal organizations and persuading the national news media to report the story. He charged that "the whole syndicate" was "a huge nationwide concerted effort to destroy everything we believe in."

You can read all about it in The Paper of Record. Elsewhere, these guys provide a good post and discussion of the Constitutional issues involved with the Schiavo case. And for further elaboration on DeLay's remarks, you might consult this important video.
