Strange bedfellows, indeed....

It bothers me to see some on the right happy that Jesse Jackson jumped into the Terri Schiavo matter ... This guy has said some extremely vile things over his career. He has engaged in what I call extortion of major corporations. He has cozied up to our enemies and belittled and undermined US foreign policy. He has claimed blacks were disenfranchised during the 2000 elections. He has been extremely critical of pretty much everything the GOP stands for.

And yet, because he is supportive of efforts to keep Terri Schiavo alive, he's welcome and his efforts appreciated. Well, if this is the Big Tent the GOP keeps talking about, I want nothing to do with it.
