Bush Goes Into Matrix To Save Terri Shiavo

Bush has, for the very first time ever in his presidency, come back early from a vacation in Crawford, to address the Terri Shiavo case. I'd hate to think that this was a baldly political reach around to the fundies, but then I remember all the rest of the shit that has happened in the last four years that didn't warrant coming back to work early. And yet, people think Bush is all about values. The only answer is that he can remake the Matrix as he sees fit and will some day soon lead us to the real world.

In the mean time, life in the Congo still sucks more than anything should suck and we're spending national attention and over $80,000 a year to keep a woman alive that stopped living life when "Particle Man" by They Might Be Giants was brand new and Apartheid was still in effect. Here are some other things that happened in 1990 other than Terri Shiavo dying.

Thanks to Ezra for the tip.

Edit: Drew from Terminus found some hot pics of Terri's brain. I don't think any of us need an MD to seek how fucked up that is.

Re-Edit: Look at the pics linked above, then read this quote from Tom DeLay: ""She talks and she laughs and she expresses likes and discomforts," he said Sunday evening. "It won't take a miracle to help Terri Schiavo. It will only take the medical care and therapy that patients require." Tom DeLay is a fucking liar, yet it doesn't seem like anyone has seriously called him on it, at least, not yet.

Omega Edit: Ok, here's a conservative voice for our debate, though it focus' on Terri's husband. Of course, James Taranto is completely wrong and is either being purposefully deceptive or is so simply foolish that it'd be amusing if the issue weren't so infuriating. Several courts have found that Terri Schiavo expressed a wish to die if she were in this type of situation. To me, that's all I need to know.
