Leave it to Jesse

Mr. Jackson, drawing the completely appropriate comparison between John Paul II and Terri Schiavo [not exact]:
Well, the pope's on a feeding tube, they're not going to take it out. Why would you take the feeding tube out of Terri Schiavo?

Brilliant. Just brilliant.

UPDATE: Here's the transcript [from Lexis-Nexis]:
You know, today the Pope is now on a feeding tube. And thank God for the science and laws, his life can be sustained through a feeding tube. They're not going to pull the Pope's feeding tube, and they shouldn't. But then he's not instructive that we see the value in sustaining him through a feeding tube, and here is Terri likewise struggling to -- she needs food. She needs water. And we can give it to her, and we are not.

A lot less coherent than above, but pretty much the same.
