David Winston, a Republican ‘Strategist,’ was just on Connected Coast to Coast, and started his opposition to allowing Terri to die with the following:
“I think we can all agree that Michael Schaivo is a questionable character…”
No. NO! AND NO, DAMNIT! I don’t f-ing agree he is a questionable character. I think he is a normal guy who was very in love with his wife. His wife hid her bulimia from him, it is a disease that thrives on secrecy, and then had a heart attack which caused grievous amounts of brain damage. I think he then, for years, held out hope that she would recover, but then decided this was not possible, and has tried to carry through with what he believed, through conversation and experience, were his wife’s intent.
Along the way, he fell in love with someone else- not out of infidelity, because Terri is for all intents dead and always will be, but because he just did. Someone being a loving husband, decent caretaker, and good father- that is how these jackasses define ‘questionable character.’
None of us can live up to these standards. Lying hacks. All of them.
Fortunately, Ron Reagan and Craig Crawford jumped in and shut this crap down right quick.
Crawfor just had him for lunch again, when Winston tried to say this wasn’t a right-to-die case. It most certainly is- it is not a euthanasia case, Mr. Winston.
