Push Back

The Schiavo case has entered it's final stages. All the legal stuff has played out, but the poor woman is not yet gone. Everyone brace yourselves for a big hearty round of "Liberals Kill Terri." It's going to be a staple of right-wing fund raising rhetoric for years to come. I for one am not going to stand for it. Time for a push back. Joe Carlson has the best pushback point:

While exploiting Schiavo's tragedy for maximum impact, these opportunity probably won't dwell on the most salient political fact about those awful judges who have ruled so consistently in favor of Schiavo's husband and against her parents. Most of those tyrannical jurists happen to be Republicans, too.
When the Schindlers appealed Whittemore's decision to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, a three-judge panel rejected their plea for a stay. Of the two judges who ruled against the Schindlers, Ed Carnes is a conservative Republican appointed by former President George H.W. Bush, and Frank Hull is a moderate Democrat appointed by Clinton. The dissenting judge, who supported the Schindlers' plea, was Charles Wilson -- another Clinton appointee.

Republican appointed judges ruled against the reinsertion of the feeding tube. Bush is taking a hit on this. Fight back against bullies and they will run.

Go to Majikthise and The Gladflyer for more good push back points.
