…but you just can't kill the beast

It turns out that the only folks abusing Terri Schiavo were politicians, according to Florida investigators:

The agency completed nine reports of abuse accusations made from 2001 to 2004, including neglect of hygiene, denial of dental care, poisoning and physical harm. The accusations, which have been widely reported, focus on Michael Schiavo, the husband of Terri. Ms. Schiavo died on March 31, nearly two weeks after her feeding tube was removed.

The names of many accusers have been blacked out in the documents, but the name of Ms. Schiavo’s father, Robert Schindler, appears on one.

And via Stephen Bainbridge comes word that the Democrats will be bringing up Terri Schiavo again during at least the next two election cycles:

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Friday that his party would wield the Terri Schiavo case against Republicans in the 2006 and 2008 elections, but for now needed to stay focused battling President Bush on Social Security.

“We’re going to use Terri Schiavo later on,” Dean said of the brain-damaged Floridian who died last month after her feeding tube was removed amid a swarm of political controversy.

I can hardly wait…

of course we’ll bring it up – it’s a great example of what a bunch of nutcases the kooky kristians who kontrol the kapital are! it sure was fun watching the kristians get their panties in a knot over terri and then over the dead repressed homopope!



Does this bitches’ comment strike you as a bit hateful? (Note my sarcasm in referring to her as a bitch).


No, it just strikes me as completely insane (or a really bad parody of a left-winger).


It’s not a parody. I’ve seen her around the blogosphere and she’s a hardcore lefty. Supposed to be an economist of some sort as well.


Well, if she’s an economist, she’s in good company.
