SCHIAVO HYSTERIA from Fox's John Gibson:
Just to burnish my reputation as a bomb thrower, I think Jeb Bush should give serious thought to storming the Bastille.
By that I mean he should think about telling his cops to go over to Terri Schiavo's hospice, go inside, put her on a gurney and load her into an ambulance. They could take her to a hospital, revive her, and reattach her feeding tube. It wouldn't save Terri exactly; she'd still be in the same rotten shape she was in before they disconnected the feeding tube.
I think John Gibson should have to spend a few minutes alone with Bill Quick.
UPDATE: Ron Brownstein, on the other hand, wins the award for the cheesiest effort so far to make hay out of the Schiavo tragedy for his own unrelated pet issue: "Does the 'culture of life' extend to the victims of gun violence?"
As John Cole observes: "There is enough dumb out there to hold both parties back."
