Is the Whole World Backwards? (No, Just Washington.)

Republicans are working overtime this weekend to make new sweeping, blanket-like laws for the purpose of keeping Terri Schiavo alive. Well, thank GOD, because if I'm anything like the religious right, I just can't get enough of telling other people what's best for them and their loved ones. When viewed side-by-side with their foreign policy, I cannot help but assume that being a conservative means spending the most energy to protect the most futile causes, while devoting similarly large amounts of effort towards destroying people whose lives won't be spent hooked up to feeding tubes.

Another example is Congress's recent display of "concern" over whether Mark McGuire uses steroids. He obviously does. Will the Secretary please introduce the next item. Call Congress and make your disgust known. Just kidding, Congress never answers the phone. But here's some cool trivia: The toll-free number for Congress is 1-877-SOB-U-SOB. True story.
