The Amazing Two Headed Country!

Just in case you missed the point to this whole Terri Shiavo story, here it is, coherently summarized by John Leo.
Think of the Terri Schiavo case as another red-versus-blue issue. Congress, Republican-dominated and therefore mostly red, asked the federal courts to take a fresh look. The federal judiciary, in its customary imperial blue, contemptuously told Congress to take a hike. It wouldn't delay the execution for even a few days. For that, you need to be a convicted cop killer.
Yep. Republicans want to save life, Democrats want to snuff it out. "One wants to love; one wants to kill," as the old two headed monster movie poster read.

And there it is. Or, at least, that is what our buddies in the Conservative Movement would like you to believe.
