Now They're Speaking In Tongues?

This is just too weird for Color TV...
Protesters' tactics dispel lawmaker's doubts

The experience of one wavering Miami lawmaker during the debate over Terri Schiavo's fate hardened her stance.


TALLAHASSEE - After casting an anguished vote last week against a bill to keep Terri Schiavo alive, state Sen. Larcenia Bullard said she began to reconsider, thinking to herself: I will not have her death rest on my shoulders.

Word that the Miami Democrat was on the fence spread among protesters who have descended on the Capitol.

But instead of pushing Bullard to their side, the protesters' aggressive tactics pushed her away. When the bill to keep Schiavo alive came up for another vote Wednesday, Bullard again voted not to intervene in Schiavo's case.

Bullard told her colleagues how one group of protesters, initially claiming they were staffers from Gov. Jeb Bush's office, bowed down to her and spoke in tongues in her office Monday. They called her ''our Esther,'' referring to the Old Testament figure who saved the Jews from death. LINK (BugMeNot login:; password: greengoblin1)
