The Schiavo Results Are In...But, So What?

The medical examiner has released the results of Terri Schiavo's autopsy, and it is exactly as the medical experts said. She was brain dead, had no chance of recovery, she was blind, and she had not been abused. But so what? The right-wing wackos have actually been able to spin it to suit their cause.

From Puffy McMoon Face:

Q So the staff has told him about that? Does the autopsy findings affect in any way the administration's view on this issue and the federal government's role in these kinds of cases?

MR. McCLELLAN: Yes, I think Dick was asking that question earlier and I indicated, no, it doesn't change the position that the President took. The President took the position he did for a reason. The President believes we should stand on the side of defending and protecting life. That's why he stood with all those who supported efforts to defend her life. This is a sad case. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with her family and friends.

Q So if and when another case like this comes up, he would take the same --

MR. McCLELLAN: I think you're asking a hypothetical at this point. But the President --

Q That's not hypothetical; there's cases like this all the time.

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, let me respond. The President is always going to stand on the side of protecting and defending life, and that's what he did in this case.

If y'all can stand to watch Fox News tonight without vomiting, you'll see just how they continue with their idiocy!
