Crocodile Tears


Florida state Sen. Nancy Argenziano spoke at the Capitol in Tallahassee yesterday about her decision to vote against intervening in the case of Terri Schiavo, whose feeding tube was removed but reinserted twice in the past after legal and legislative efforts to keep her alive.

When I saw this in this morning's U-T, I thought: Why can't these supposedly compassionate Republicans spare a little compassion for the truly living? How about shedding a tear for the homeless, for the hungry, for the downtrodden in our country? How about sobbing for the thousands of Iraqis terrorized by our unjust war and occupation?

How about some real compassion, and how about letting that compassion guide your actions?

Crying on command to energize the base is contemptable.
