Liberals Go Parading Through The Cemetary

Today I'd like to take one last look at the Terri Schiavo case. Specifically, I think it's worth taking stock of who's still talking about her, and in what context.

Up first, the Christian Defense Coalition. These are the bogeymen that want to break into your house and forcibly convert you, or so the Left would like you to believe. They released this statement yesterday in response to Michael Schiavo's distasteful choice of grave marker for Terri:
"By this one repugnant act, Michael Schiavo has revealed what we and the family knew all along. This was not a loving and caring husband that was concerned about the welfare of Terri. This was a self-centered and hateful man who believed Terri died 15 years ago and was doing all within his power to see that Terri was dehydrated and starved to death. This calls into question the role of Michael being Terri's guardian. For how could he have possibly looked out for her best interests when he felt she was already dead?"
Now whether you agree with the statement or not, it's hard to construe this statement as a political attack. It reads simply as the continued defense of Terri's worth from a group who believed it was acting in her best interests. These are the people that Frist and Delay were supposedly in cahouts with; how dastardly.

Contrast that with Howard Dean's remarks this month:
"[Republican's] government is just big enough to fit inside Terri Schiavo's bed in the nursing home. We can do better than that.''
and
"We're going to use Terri Schiavo later on [as a campaign issue]"
Granted Dean's a nutjob, but this sentiment has been repeated again and again by the Left: Terri Schiavo is an issue to be exploited in the coming elections. Odd when you consider this is the principal charge the Dems have leveled against Republicans on the issue. Meanwhile, the care for her as a human being that the Right has expressed is no where to be found on the Left. If they can't give her that, can't they at least let her rest in peace?

Gee whiz, lets make something personal public again. Don't let it go! No way! Stay on top of this guy forever!

Who the f*** are you and I to pass judgement on what her husband wanted to put on her grave marker? I'm sorry but where is the law governing that? Who the f*** sets the standards for grave markers? I guess we should check with the Christian Defense Council before having a marker engraved? And who asked for their damn opinion? Oh, wait, don't worry, I am sure the Senate will have an emergency session to pass a resolution that will be signed by Bush decrying the horrorific information on the head stone!
F'n A, get over it! It is not your life or family!

And you know what, republican or democrat, any s*** in the federal government who stuck their nose in this matter should be kicked out on their ass this next election. Or sooner. What, now its a problem that the Dems want to make it a pet issue? I'm sorry did the Republicans have proprietary rights to Schiavo? NO ONE should keep sticking their f'ing nose in this matter except for the family.

Come on, Brash!

Jeb Bush won't let Terry Rest in Peace. He wants another investigation.

Even the House is coming around Stem Cell research. But Bush says he will veto, clearly ingoring the will of the people.

Ned,
You don't think the tombstone was a slap in the faces of her parents and siblings? He can do what ever he wants obviously, I think (and the article suggests) that it speaks to his character, or lack thereof.

Crackpot,
Have no clue what Jeb's smoking, make no excuses for him. And lets not drag stem cells into this.....or Medicaid.

I dont have aproblem with this.

30 Judges rules unanimously, under threat of death from the Far Right, that Michael had his wife's interests at heart.

I'm sorry Brash, I will say it again, we have NO right to stick our noses in that FAMILY matter.

Just for shits and giggles, for one minute accept that Michael Schiavo is right. In that case, who is being disrespected? Now, which one us was present when Terri Schiavo was alive and married? Which one of us was sitting in their kitchen listening to their heart to hearts? Anyone?

The lack of respect coming from the Christian right is deplorable.

Look Ned, no one is demanding the tombstone be removed or changed. We're just collectively saying "What an asshole."

It's called an opinion, and for now anyway, it's still legal even if it's unpopular.

So... why is it that conservative Christians, who supposedly believe there is a better life to come after this one, so afraid of death?

"Culture of life" my ass... they're all scared shitless of dying. Frightened to the point that they can't even bear the thought of someone else being allowed to die. Sort of makes you wonder what they've been up to... since obviously they must believe they're going to hell.

The slow starvation was barbaric. I'll agree with that. A person should die with at least as much dignity as the family dog. When my time comes -- whack me up with a nice morphine cocktail, or the most effecatious drug du jour -- and let me go.

It's nice that you and your Collective correct the behaivor of private citizens. How blessed we all are that the private asshole can exposed to the bleaching light of the Collective.

I hope that eventually the Collective will turn its sites towards me that I may feel the cleansing fire of your Opinion, so I might be meet your standards.

The private life is dead. And thank god for that.

And pray, bid a good eventide to Prior Goody for me at the Vesper Service.
