Peggy Noonan on Terri Schiavo: 'Don't Kick It'Topics: News
This article is very appropriate because Tim and I (2 of the BlogsForTerri folks) were just talking on the telephone about identifying every single Republican in the Florida and US House and Senate that failed Terri Schiavo. We intend to establish the Terri Schiavo "Wall of Shame" and commit tonight to seeing to it that BlogsForTerri and every pro-life blogger we can muster makes sure that those Republicans are NOT REELECTED!
On the political implications of Terri's case: "If Terri Schiavo is killed, Republicans will pay a political price. "
It appears we've reached the pivotal moment in the Terri Schiavo case, and it also appears our politicians, our senators and congressmen, might benefit from some observations.
In America today all big stories have three dimensions: a legal angle, a public-relations angle and a political angle. In the Schiavo case some of our politicians seem not to be fully appreciating the second and third. This is odd.
Here's both a political and a public-relations reality: The Republican Party controls the Senate, the House and the White House. The Republicans are in charge. They have the power. If they can't save this woman's life, they will face a reckoning from a sizable portion of their own base. And they will of course deserve it.
This should concentrate their minds.
