Terri Schiavo updates

What, you thought her case was over? Hell no -- Frist and his Frothing Fundies are still milking it big-time -- though the blow-back is also starting to hurt him big-time:

As [Terri Schiavo] lay dying in Florida, Frist - who said he had reviewed court documents and videos - appeared on the Senate floor. Saying he "spoke more as a doctor than a senator," he declared that "there seems to be insufficient information to conclude" that Schiavo - an icon to religious conservatives - was in a "persistent vegetative state" that would justify allowing her to die. In a private letter to Frist, NEWSWEEK has learned, 31 of the 165 members of his medical-school class accused him of using his medical degree improperly.
Keep it up, Bill. You think this will help you win the White House in '08? Think again. Six months from now, Republicans will be ashamed even to say your name in public. Meanwhile, Jackson Thoreau over at Counterpunch reminds us that the mother of "Culture of Death Penalty Life" Bush withheld medical treatment from his little sister, thus allowing her to die. But of course, it's OK since they're Republicans. Oh, and just in case you missed it, all of the abuse allegations against Michael Schiavo -- many if not most of them apparently phoned in by people who had never so much as visited Terri in person, but who believed everything Randall Terry and the Schindlers spewed -- were dismissed.
