I haven't covered the Schiavo case at all, on the account that many others are doing a great job already of exposing the Repug hypocrisy. But I came across this at Raw Story - the infamous GOP talking points that so many have been talking about:

This is an important moral issue and the pro-life base will be excited that the Senate is debating this important issue.

This is a great political issue, because Senator Nelson of Florida - has already refused to become a cosponsor and this is a tough issue for Democrats.

Meanwhile, have any of you talked to anyone who would want to be kept alive in the same sad state as Terry Schiavo? I know I haven't, even from the most diehard wingnuts. I know if if were me, I'd want my loved ones to do the right thing - and pull the plug. But we all know this is about much more than least, those of us who read liberal blogs...

Again, the GOP is out of touch.
