The National Papers On Schiavo

From Holden:

The Washington Post’s lead editorial slams Georgie and the Republican sleazemongers.

The U.S. legal system is not supposed to be one of legislative “do-overs” in which Congress, if it doesn’t like the outcome in a high-profile case, changes the rules on behalf of politically favored parties.

While over at the New York Times one editorial cannont contain the editors’ full range of disgust with today’s GOP…

The new law tramples on the principle that this is “a nation of laws, not of men,” and it guts the power of the states. When the commotion over this one tragic woman is over, Congress and the president will have done real damage to the founders’ careful plan for American democracy.

So they published two.

The sight of Congress and President Bush intruding into the sufferings of the Schiavo family was appalling.
