Second thoughts???

Newly elected U.S. Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL), who's widely acknowledged to be one of the dullest bulbs in the Capitol ceiling, after pushing Congress and the White House to approve the extraordinarily invasive "Terri Schaivo Bill," is now telling the New York Times that he's having "second thoughts" about what he did.
"Senator Mel Martinez, the Florida Republican who pressed the case most, said he has since had second thoughts about Congress's involvement. "I really probably come to the view this has to be more resolved at the state level, seems like the kind of issue the state courts deal with," Mr. Martinez said.
Wouldn't it be better if Martinez were capable of having a "first" thought before he goes charging off to invade the privacy of citizens and undo centuries of settled jurisprudence?
