You couldn’t pay me to be this guy:
Hours after President Bush signed legislation early today that would allow a federal court to intervene in the case of Terri Schiavo, a judge in Tampa began conducting a hearing to consider a request by her parents to reinsert her feeding tube.
The hearing before United States District Judge James D. Whittemore began shortly after 3 p.m., and continued a day of intense activity on many fronts to try to intervene in Ms. Schiavo’s case, which has ignited an emotional national debate over the right-to-die issue. On Sunday, Mr. Bush flew back to Washington from his Texas ranch to sign legislation that was approved by Congress in the early hours this morning.
He is not going to rule in favor of the Schindler’s and their Holy Warrior allies in Congress, and you watch- all hell is going to break loose. Despite the fact that there is simply no way this legislation could be validated, poor Judge Whittemore is going to destroyed in the next few days.
When waging jihad, you can’t worry about a little collateral damage, and that is what Whittemore will become, as will anyone else who dare stand in the way of the fight for the ‘culture of life.’ Why, he is a Clinton appointee! An Activist Judge! Out of control judiciary!
Terri Schiavo’s desires and the desires of her husband don’t matter. The Constitution be damned. Separation of powers be buggered. Federalism-Schmederalism. Check out this for shocking demagoguery:
Like other Republican lawmakers championing Schiavo’s bill, DeLay often suggests she is alert and potentially treatable.
“She talks and she laughs and she expresses likes and discomforts,” he said Sunday evening. “It won’t take a miracle to help Terri Schiavo. It will only take the medical care and therapy that patients require.”
People who lie this easily and openly and are this disconnected from the truth- people like this don’t care about pesky things like facts, and they certainly don’t care about destroying someone like Michael Schiavo, and as you shall soon see, United States District Judge James D. Whittmore.
I am truly sad for my Republican party.
