AIG and Terri Schiavo

Conventional wisdom has it that the ‘culture of corruption’ undid the GOP’s hold on congress in 2006.

I disagree.

It was the Terri Schiavo fiasco that put the fear of god in many a moderate. It was the beginning of the end for the GOP’s hold on power in DC and across the country.

For what is scarier than congress passing laws to interfere with a family affair?

Well, it’s passing laws to confiscate private property. In this case AIG bonuses, scant weeks after passing a law permitting exactly those bonuses.

I expect this from a banana republic: Lebanon, Venezuela, Russia. But the U.S. of A.?
I'm scared, very very scared.

Or perhaps this is the Democrat’s Schiavo moment?
