Bush & Republican Congress Crash

Karl Rove finally has pushed forward George Bush into saying there's nothing more that Congress will do-- stop the bleeding! The Republicans in DC are going to want a scapegoat for this, and that's likely to be Tom DeLay. Back in Florida, the Republican State Senate refuses to be rolled, and with Jeb Bush now personally (through the tool of the government) seeking to take away custody of Schiavo from her husband, under Big Father state control... I guess we should believe him when he says he's not running for President, cause this is his big moment to forever sink the Bush battleship.
Update:Bush's petition is here. In true Republican fashion, they go after the strength of the enemy, trying to undermine Schiavo's husband by "alleging abuse neglect and exploitation" by Micheal Schiavo, citing recent Hotline calls (probably made by theocons) to the Dept. of Children and Families. So they want 60 days to investigate them, in the meantime, taking over custody.
Update II: ""I'm doing everything within my powers,"Jeb Bush said, but Judge George Greer rejected his bid for immediate custody." It's onto the Supremes today, where this will end? George Bush, reading the polls, is washing his hand of the matter. The Republicans in the Florida Senate refuse to yield. Jeb Bush seems to be the last refuge for thecons, will he order state military forces to take custody of Schiavo?
