"This is a great moral issue...This is a great political issue..."

What's the difference again?

Here's the talking points memo that the Republicans circulated RE: Terri (note the proper spelling) Schiavo.

Man, politics is a dirty, dirty business - it's filthy.

My heart goes out to all the Republicans who capitalize on the suffering of others. To me, their motives are clear.

1. Distract attention from the economy/budget.
2. Throw the base a bone.
3. Make political gains against Democrats.
