Terri Schiavo, noted telepath (thanks copygodd) is now a political football. Since she no longer resides in her own head, she probably doesn’t give a shit. The question though is why?
We know the GOP wants to pander to the religious (Christian) hateful. (“This is an important moral issue and the pro-life base will be excited that the Senate is debating this important issue.”) But that’s not all.
Yesterday on Larry King, he showed a clip of the Sister of Terrizombie ((c) 2005 MP) holding court with the press to say, “my brother in law is a whoremonger. Give me back my sister so we can be one big happy family, plus a turnip.” Or something. Behind her was an archetypical Mao*Mart shopper, holding a sign.
Look who else uses this phrase. More. More. More. More.
Look who their poster boy for a “good” judge is. And look who wants to ramrod a bunch of like-minded kooks.
Do the math.
And just wait to see what comes up in future confirmation hearings.
One thought on “Co-Opting the Moment”
don’t forget those evil “activist” judges.
you know, the kind who ignored the will of the people and appointed dubya back in 2000.
