Jesse Jackson Visits Terri Schiavo Hospice
As if Terri Schiavo’s fate were not enough of a circus, Jesse Jackson has now arrived on the scene.
The Reverend Jesse Jackson issued a statement Tuesday calling for the reinsertion of the feeding tube that kept Terri Schiavo alive for 15 years. Jackson released the statement as he visited the hospice where Shiavo is dying at the invitation of SchiavoÃ¢€™s parents, Bob and Mary Schindler. He is urging SchiavoÃ¢€™s supporters to bring the Ã¢€œsame passionÃ¢€ to the fight against world hunger.
George Will once wrote, “Nowadays no diplomatic farce is complete without a cameo appearance by Jesse Jackson.” Once again, this hypothesis is confirmed.
