Jeb Bush and delays

On the heels of the Terri Schiavo autopsy, the Governor of Florida has asked for an investigation of Michael Schiavo's alleged delay in calling 911 when his wife orginally collapsed back in 1991. Wow, I'm excited about this.

This means the governor might check into some other delays in his state.

1) On 9/11 2001, the president, who has the same last name as the governor of Florida, apparently took 10 minutes to respond to reports that commercial airliners had been highjacked and flown into the World Trade Center.

2) In November of 2000, several hundred African-American voters complained that they were delayed from voting by a variety of police stops, traffic checkpoints, etc.

3) It's been alleged that some of the 9/11 highjackers were trained in Florida flight schools. Glad to hear that the governor will be investigating how that happened after a long delay.

4) And how about the governor's role in delaying the return of Elian Gonzales to his own father? fascinating example of family values in action there.

Apparently, the governor of Florida has a lot of time on his hands. Everything else in the state of Florida must be just fine.

You must be kidding?! Let's hunt down that Michael Schiavo!? Welcome to LoonLand. It would be entirely distasteful of me to suggest that Jeb is beating a dead horse here. I speak with the authority of someone who had a vegetable brother (Mother had a mild case of german measles while she was carrying him) and there should have been euthanasia.

I hate to play the dead-vegetable-brother card to trump the braying of the Pious, but The wrong & sick thing in this whole dismal affair was the death by dehydration. For gods' sakes, back on the farm when an animal (Yes, Virgina, we are animals)was hurt or sick past help, we gave them a shot that let them die with dignity. Jeb, take your meds!

Sad story about your brother. The only person who I know of who had a similar experience with a fmaily member and who was extremely active on the side of prolonging Terri Schiavo's breathing and forced feeding (still very strange if she really was bulimic) was Tom Delay. Seemed odd to me that Mr. Delay didn't publicly share his own experience with having to terminate the life of a family member in a coma. The one difference of course was that Tom Delay's father was talking after he fell into his coma. Instead of dehydrating their patriarch, the Delay family chose to strangle him.
I hope the governor of Texas reopens that investigation. He left an awful lot of money to his wife and children. Even worse, they didn't even have a judge review the matter.

Ah, Mr. Delay. He goes in the Moralists Who Make Me Queasy Hall of Fame along with, among many Red State All-Stars, Jimmy Swaggart and Bill "I Never Bet More Than I Can Afford To Lose Bennett, who might in a better world be Bill I Gave It All To Charity Rather Than Dumping It Down The RatHole Of My Addiction Bennett.

Governor Bush eneded the investigation of the 911 call....There was no evidence of wrongdoing.
