Friday Rudeness

Please go read today's Rude Pundit post, Terry Schiavo Must Die. He's even ruder than usual, but last night's c-span2 orgy of preening self-righteousness on the senate floor proved that rudeness is the very least they deserve.

What kind of mind comes to the conclusion that literally wheeling Terry Schiavo before Congress to "testify" is a good idea?

[UPDATE]: This just in: Judge Orders Schiavo Feeding Tube Removed
    PINELLAS PARK, Fla. - The presiding judge in the case of Terri Schiavo ruled Friday that the feeding tube keeping the brain-damaged woman alive must be removed, despite efforts by congressional Republicans to block the move by seeking her appearance at hearings.

    Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer refused a request from U.S. House attorneys to delay the removal, which he had previously ordered to take place at 1 p.m. EST. Greer determined that it should go forward about an hour after another judge issued a temporary delay blocking the tube's removal.

    "I have had no cogent reason why the (congressional) committee should intervene," Greer told attorneys in a conference call, adding that last-minute action by Congress does not invalidate years of court rulings.
