Go Illini Go! And Beyond the Beltway tonight

Fantastic. The Illini are in the Final Four with one of the greatest comebacks in college basketball history.

And I'll be appearing on Beyond the Beltway today, likely talking about the partisan, we-know-better-than-your-marriage federal Republicans trying to fire up their anti-choice base with the Terri Schiavo private legislation.

It's about as hypocritical as can be to propose an anti-life and pro-hunger budget with cuts for the poor, and then act like the saints with this special Schiavo bill. Which is designed to try to beat Florida Senator Ben Nelson, and let the fundamentalists running too much of the GOP trump the rule of law.

Regarding Terri, I agree with such Progessives at Nat Henthoff, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Ralph Nader -- none of whom are from the far right -- yet all of whom are critical of starving/dehydrating her to death. I remember when Dan was a big fan of Ralph's.
