Sean Gleeson at Diary of an Oklahoma Artist reports that Jeb Bush may have grown a spine, after all.
According to this story from Knight-Ridder (not all that credible a source – yes, I know, but still…), Jeb had a team of state police on their way to pick Terri up.
Hours after a judge ordered that Terri Schiavo wasn’t to be removed from her hospice, a team of Florida law enforcement agents were en route to seize her and have her feeding tube reinserted – but they stopped short when local police told them they would enforce the judge’s order, The Miami Herald has learned.
Agents of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement told police in Pinellas Park, the small town where Schiavo lies at Hospice Woodside, that they were on the way to take her to a hospital to resume her feeding.
For a brief period, local police, who have officers around the hospice to keep protesters out, prepared for what sources called a showdown.
In the end, the state agents and the Department of Children and Families backed down, apparently concerned about confronting local police outside the hospice.
“We told them that unless they had the judge with them when they came, they were not going to get in,” said a source with the local police.
So, in essence, the Florida State Police were stared down by a bunch of Pinellas Park Podunk Pigs.
Oh, that’ll look good on the résumé, guys.
That tells me two things:
1) Jeb really doesn’t have the balls to be governor – and, since his widdle brother Shrub didn’t do a damned thing about it, neither does he have the balls to be President.
2) It also tells me that Jefferson’s Tree of Liberty is a helluva lot drier than even I thought, and watering time is not far off.

This is painless??? Dignified? This is what Terri would have wanted, Mikey Shitstain?
Well, pardon me for saying so, but BULLSHIT!!!
Contrary to predictions that Terri Schiavo’s starvation death would be painless and dignified, an eyewitness who visited her hospice room early Saturday morning reports that she is now bleeding from the eyes and mouth.
Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” reports:
“Barbara Weller, who’s is one of the attorneys for the Schindlers, says that the last time she checked in, not very many hours ago, Terri’s eyes and tongue were bleeding now.
“Her eyes are sunken and her skin continues to flake off,” Weller added.
On Thursday Terri’s parents reported that their daughter now resembles “an Auschwitz victim.”
Oh, yeah. That’s “death with dignity”. That’s “painless”??? That’s “what she would have wanted”???
Oh. Wait – no, it isn’t.
Another legal maneuver included a late afternoon filing asking Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer to order the reinsertion of the tube, claiming Terri Schiavo tried to say “I want to live” when her tube was removed.
Well, so much for the claims of “persistent vegetative state”.
Hey, but it’s okay, isn’t it? Like you pro-deathers keep saying – Terri’s not there anymore; Terri’s not a person anymore, she’s Mikey Shitstain’s property; he can do with her what he wants, can’t he?
