New Ad Sponsor

You might notice on the right that I have a new sponsor, TerriPAC. The ad will be there for two weeks. Unlike the last ad, pushing the profoundly silly idea that 9/11 was staged, this is one I can really get behind. It’s a political action committee set up by Michael Schiavo to fight against…

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise

Florida State Attorney Bernie McCabe, the prosecutor that Gov. Jeb Bush urged to do an investigation of possible criminal wrongdoing by Michael Schiavo the night Terri collapsed, has concluded that there is no evidence of anything criminal. Even Jeb Bush says that’s the end of the matter now, by which he probably means “please, please,…

Tierney on the Schiavo Autopsy

Predictably, the Worldnutdaily has trotted out “experts” – including the uber-fraud Dr. Hammesfahr – to claim that the autopsy didn’t show that she was in PVS. I was going to fisk the articles they’ve had on it myself, but instead I asked Adam Tierney, one of my fellow In the Agora contributors, to do so.…

Majikthise on Schiavo

Majikthise has an excellent fisking of Joan Didion’s article in the New York Review of Books about the Schiavo case. In particular, she points out the absurdity of those who are saying that since the autopsy said there’s no evidence of bulimia or a “heart attack” in the autopsy, Michael must have done something abusive.

Mark Fuhrman: Media Whore

In response to my post about the Schiavo autopsy on In the Agora, an anonymous poster that everyone there refers to as “Leon” left a typically amusing comment. He wrote: I note also that Mark Furman, author and criminal investigator, has spent a number of weeks going over the totality of the records and will…

The Schiavo exploitation continues. Jeb Bush has pushed a prosecutor in Florida to open an investigation of the circumstances involving Michael Schiavo’s 911 call the morning that Terri collapsed – an investigation he admits is highly unlikely to find anything: Gov. Jeb Bush said Friday that a prosecutor has agreed to investigate why Terri Schiavo…

Freepers Go Apeshit Over Autopsy

If you’re looking for the folks for whom the Worldnutdaily exists, look no further than Free Republic. It’s basically a central online gathering place for every deluded and ignorant pedestrian right winger in the country. And you just gotta see the total meltdown they’re having over the autopsy of Terri Schiavo. Some of these people…

Schiavo Autopsy Confirms Diagnosis

The autopsy done on Terri Schiavo has been released and to the surprise only of those who listened to the steady stream of nonsense coming from her family and amplified by the media, it confirmed exacly what Michael Schiavo, Judge Greer and the medical experts who examined her had said all along: Thogmartin said that…

The Worldnutdaily has a headline, Judge in Terri’s Case Had Conflict of Interest, which links to this story about Federal District Court Judge Whittemore from a hilariously biased website about Terri Schiavo. The article claims that Whittemore had an “overwhelming conflict of interest in the matter that ethically prohibited him from sitting on the case.”…

Joseph Farah is always good for a laugh or two, and this morning’s ridiculous screed is no exception. The column is titled Republican Judges Killed Terri, and he points to conservative judges like William Pryor who “ignored the will of the people and the U.S. Congress and the president of the United States.” There’s just…
