And, now comes Peggy Noonan, arguing that the GOP has to storm the hospice where Terry Schiavo lies in order to keep the natives happy. Et tu, Peggy?

The Democrats (it was Boxer, but the rest of them enabled her) held up certifying Bush's re-election... and we trashed them for doing so. Harry Reid threatens to bring the Senate to a standstill... and we trashed him for doing so. Why? So this could become our version of demanding a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part?

What (is supposed) to distinguish us from the savages is our ability to fight fair. To uphold the sanctity of the process over that of the end result. To be beyond calling for civil insurrection in order to appease the grass roots. Jeez, if the grass roots are unable to see the emptiness of such a gesture, then the heck with them. After all, aren't we the ones calling on Democrats to ignore the bats in their attics?
