Jeb Bush Moron or Right Wing Shill?

The recently released autopsy report of Terri Schiavo has proved 1) She was less likely to be cured than a pet rock is to talk and 2) her condition was not the result of any misdeeds by Michael Schiavo. This apparently dismayed Jeb Bush and his bible pounding supporters. Jeb has now announced that he has asked a prosecutor to investigate the supposed delay in the 911 call at her original medical emergency when she was found unconscious in 1990 by her husband Michael.

Jeb is grasping at straws to ‘kiss up’ to his Radical Christian base. He is waving as his evidence a statement made by Michael Schiavo in a 1992 medical malpractice trial that he found Terri unconscious at around 5am and that he called 911 at around 5:40am. Jeb announced that he has asked the Pinellas-Pasco County State Attorney Bernie McCabe requesting an investigation. He specifically says in his letter to McCabe, “In light of this new information, I urge you to take a fresh look at this case without any preconceptions as to the outcome.” Is he kidding? Does he really classify a statement made in 1992 (13 years ago for the math challenged like Jeb) as “new information”. Does he believe for a second that the insurance companies involved in the multi-million dollar payout that resulted from this 1992 case would have not investigated this in detail and used it as evidence that the doctors were not responsible for the outcome if it was even remotely possible.

Jeb give it up! Michael Schiavo has suffered enough through this protracted years long nightmare carrying out the wishes of his wife to die with dignity. Based on the facts of the case Jeb’s perspective is “braindead” and he is proving that Terri’s level of mental function was only slightly more diminished than his own.
