Well, the two aren't exactly analogous. One involved the MURDER of ONE woman, sanctioned by the government. The other involved a NATURAL disaster affecting THOUSANDS.

Rocco:

try recalling 435 members from across the country in one day. That's not the way it happened with Schiavo. It took a hell of a lot longer than one day. The cartoon is fundamentally misleading.

Yes, the hurricane hit Monday the 29th. FEMA began expending $$$ in a real way on Tuesday the 30th. Budget calculations were made by the 31st, the Administration sent down the first formal request on the 1st, and The House (and I believe the Senate) met on the 2nd to pass a 10.5 billion $$$ Supplemental under Unanimous Consent.

Note: This timeline is approximately the exact Congressional timeline that always occurs in a major catastrophe.

With Schiavo, Members of Congress had been warned well in advance of the possible need for a special session.

Sorry, Rocco. No comparison there.
