Rush is an idiot, but is always good for a laugh for that very reason. I found on Media Matters, on the twenty-third, he posed this "question" to his listeners...
LIMBAUGH: A question for those of you who are our friends on the left. Just answer it honestly to yourself: How many of you want Terri Schiavo to die simply because some Christian conservatives want her to live? How many of you have rejoiced when a death row inmate has been saved because of later investigation into DNA? Do you want Terri Schiavo to die because some Christian conservatives want her to live? Is that it?
Could it be -- and I suspect this is the real answer -- could it be that you have been so pent up with rage and frustration over the Christians in this country?
You just hated the success of The Passion of the Christ. You hated the outpouring of support for that movie, you just despise the red-state, hayseed, holy-roller crowd that you think is steamrollering the country.
Maybe this is just payback; you want this woman to die because Christian conservatives want her to live. And, since you don't like Christian conservatives so much you want them to be disappointed. You want them to find out what it's like to be on the losing side.
You want them to find out what it's like to not get away with everything they want just because they're Christians. Is that it? Does it really have nothing to do with Terri Schiavo; does it have solely to do with the fact that you want payback?
No, it's because I'm under the impression that Terri Schiavo had expressed that she would not want to be kept alive artificially. I don't hate Christians, I'm one too. My views are not purposely the exact opposite of the "Christian right". I never saw the Passion of the Christ, so I have no reason to oppose it. This is one of the reasons you are so widely hated, Rush, you insist on putting each and every liberal in the same boat. It turns out Scarborough (you know, that pasty white guy?) feels the same way...
Why is that the same activists who fight to save the whales, the spotted owls, and a snail darter, for God's sake, sit quietly by while the U.S. government helps kill Terri Schiavo? Why do we see the visceral reaction by leftist organizations to the attempts to save Terri Schiavo's life? Do these liberals really hate George Bush so much? And that's all you ever hear about, George Bush. You never hear about Terri Schiavo.
But do they hate George Bush so much that they are cheering for Terri's death only because the president of the United States and his brother are fighting for Terri's life?
Once again, Terri is not an animal! She expressed in words, something an animal cannot do, that she does not want to be kept alive artificially! Thus, we are trying to fulfill her wishes and if you pricks would get out of the way and stop insisting that no one would want to die, we could do what poor Ms Schiavo wants!
