Michael Schiavo criticized congressional leaders Sunday for intruding in the fight.

"I'm outraged, and I think that every American in this country should also be outraged that this government is trampling all over a personal family matter that has been adjudicated in the courts for seven years," he told CNN. "I think that the Congress has more important things to discuss."

"Tom DeLay should be ashamed of himself," Michael Schiavo told CNN. "He's sitting up there, making comments and bashing people. He has one side of the case. ... This is his cause. He's found a cause to hide behind, to lighten the load of his other problems."

Call it for what it is, man. DeLay reminds me of Martin Sheen's character in "The Dead Zone," holding up the baby as a human shield.
