Yes, indeed, GOP Brain-Dead Politics a losing issue. Using Terri Schiavo's vegetative brain condition as PR stunt has backfired on President Bush and Republican Congression Leaders.
Americans are outraged and have seen it for what it is---a cheap political stunt to pander to the christian conservatives that have hijacked the Republican Party away from the moderates.
Here are the Republican Polling Results with respect to Schiavo:
Polls indicate those efforts may be backfiring on Republicans politically. A telephone survey by ABC News of 501 adults found that 70 percent considered the congressional action inappropriate while 27 percent said it was appropriate.
A USA Today telephone poll of 620 adults found that 52 percent agreed with U.S. District Judge James Whittemore's decision not to order the feeding tube reinserted, compared with 39 percent who disagreed.
Yeah, it was heavy. Still is sometimes when I choose to think about it. Thank you for your reply, and I enjoyed the humor too--cheers for Dad!
Amazing we can find humor in these situations. Amazing and good.
That's heavy auralia. Before my dad was completely out there was one time where most of the people in the family were able to get together at the same time and go see him. One particular cousin of mine is pretty cute and my dad had no idea who she was, but apparently he liked what he saw, because he got real happy when she walked in and a few minutes later uncharacteristically started poppen off about how he would "like to do that". We were laughing our asses off.
I think you did the right thing by not getting a gun. I look back on that day in the hospital and know that my dad would have been stoked if I would have shown up unexpectedly with a hired sweetheart to keep him company for an hour or two alone.
"I loved him and wanted him to live and see my children."
I feel ya, my boy was born two months later.
