"Cruel and Unusual" by Bob Herbert

Writing today about Jeb’s bizarre actions
NY Times (link)

“Eleven days before she died, Tom DeLay declared: "Terri Schiavo is not brain dead. She talks and she laughs, and she expresses happiness and discomfort. Terri Schiavo is not on life support."

Senator Tom Coburn, a Republican and a physician from Oklahoma, said: "All you have to do is look at her on TV. Any doctor with any conscience can look at her and know that she does not have a terminal disease and know that she has some function."

Speaking of brain damage, uh, Hello?

Read all of Mr. Herbert’s op-ed piece and rest assured that we’re not the only ones who think this is just so wrong. Bernie McCabe, the state attorney for Pinellas County doesn’t appear to be enthusiastically into this endeavor either.
