From the mouth of a Republican

In response to the vote by Congress to allow federal courts to decide the fate of Terri Schiavo, the severely brain-damaged Florida woman who was recently taken off life support, Representative Christopher Shays (R-Connecticut) said:

"My party is demonstrating that they are for states' rights unless they don't like what states are doing. This couldn't be a more classic case of a state responsibility. This Republican Party of Lincoln has become a party of theocracy. There are going to be repercussions from this vote. There are a number of people who feel that the government is getting involved in their personal lives in a way that scares them."

We are among those people. And it's about time a Republican noticed what's happening here.
