It Dropped So Low in My Regard

Schiavo Case: I don't think I have ever felt more contempt for Congressional Representatives Barney Frank and John Conyers than I do at this moment.

Just disgusting.

Steny Hoyer, on the other hand, is not an asshole. Listening to him, I got the sense that he has in fact thought long and deeply about this issue. I appreciated listening to what he had to say.

It dropped so low in my regard
I heard it hit the ground,
And go to pieces on the stones
At bottom of my mind;

Yet blamed the fate that fractured, less
Than I reviled myself
For entertaining plated wares
Upon my silver shelf.

Current Mood: disgusted

This thing has got me so upset. I don't know where people's heads are. Or hearts.

Yes, me too. I'd say it's tearing me up inside, but I know it is a thousand times worse for her family. And having this happen at Easter, if you ask me, is just an added stab in their backs.

Whoever decided that starving and dehydrating someone to death was merciful ought to have their head examined. This must be driving the medical people who are caring for her crazy, too, having to watch this slowly happen and be able to do nothing.


(I'm looking at CNN.com and a couple other places and not finding what's got you so riled. Clue please?)

I was watching the Congressional debate on the Schiavo bill just before the vote, and Frank and Conyers had said something particularly pigheaded and pompous. Fortunately, Steny Hoyer restored my faith in the Democratic party by being polite, considerate, and thoughtful.


Does "particularly pigheaded and pompous" have specific meaning in this context outside of "something I didn't agree with"?

I can't remember exactly what they said (slept since then), just that it sounded very rude to me, as if they had no compassion, whatsoever.
