Religio-hucksterism Today

The religio-hucksterism surrounding the Schiavo case makes DeMille's Hollywood crusades look like amateur night. - Frank Rich

He's right. It's despicable. What's worse is that we have Talk Radio personalities creating wedges issues and dividing the country over this.

The Schiavo case is sad. I feel sorry for her, her husband, her parents, her siblings.

And while I hope for the good that might comes of a national dialogue on how we deal with those whose minds have gone but their bodies we can preserve, the political jockeying of our President, his brother, and senators too numerous to implicate is shameful.
