I'll bet ya that Michael Schiavo and Terri Schiavo's parents all love her very much. Nobody's saying THAT though.
Who needs another opinion about Terri Schiavo?
But I like this point from Tony Pierce:
"... in his defense of signing the bill mr bush said, 'This is a complex case with serious issues. But in extraordinary circumstances like this, it is wise to err on the side of life."'
the war in iraq wasnt a complex case with serious issues and extrodinary circumstances? was it not wise to err on the side of life in that matter instead of invade a country because of their alleged weapons of mass destruction which turned out not to be there? "
Well, I guess it depends on who you ask.
But that's a digression to the Perpetual War, the other slow-motion tragedy in our American lives.
The only machine the Republicans don't want Terri unhooked from is their goddamned propaganda machine.
When she dies, they will blame the liberals forever- the slide to fascism will claim a martyr- the hypocrisy about the sanctity of marriage, their leaked talking points memo about how to "spin" Terri Schiavo for political points, the coming assault on ALL judges, Bush's own Texas law that contradicts his "moral" action yesterday- none of that will register - Terry is a prop for Tom Delay. They can't wait for her to die, really. She will be a very useful corpse.
It's telling that the second story on LA's right wing KFI-AM's hourly news broadcast this morning was about this nurse that claims that Michael Schiavo wants his wife "the b.i.t.c.h." to die (Clicking on the link lets you know that not even Terri's parents sought this woman's dubious testimony in their effort to save their daughter's life- and KFI-AM featured this woman prominently on the morning news- I've got to reset my alarm clock to fucking BUZZ)- The nurse claims that Terry could speak. The words she allegedly spoke were "Mommy", "pain", and "help me."
Interpret that how you will, if it's even true.
