Okay kids. Smile at the camera and say “Dad’s a ghoulish cheeseball”.
U.S. District Court Judge James Whittemore has defied Congress by not staying Terri Schiavo’s starvation execution for the time it takes him to hold a full hearing on her case, a leading Republican senator said Tuesday.
“You have judicial tyranny here,” Santorum told WABC Radio in New York. “Congress passed a law that said that you had to look at this case. He simply thumbed his nose at Congress.”
“What the statute that [Whittemore] was dealing with said was that he shall hold a trial de novo,” the Pennsylvania Republican explained. “That means he has to hold a new trial. That’s what the statute said.”
Maybe, just maybe, if Lil Ricky calms down a bit about this, Michael Schiavo will let him take Terri Shiavo’s body home with him for the day so the little Santorums (Ricky Bob, Ricky Joe, Ricky Steve, Ricki Sue, Ricki Mae, and Ricki Condoleezza) can pose for pictures with her . If he doesn’t use them for his Christmas cards this year, I’ll bet they’ll make a great campaign poster for 2006.
As an added note: you do realize that if both Terri Schiavo and the Pope leave this mortal coil within days of each other, the Brides of Jesus (that would be Peggy Noonan & Kathryn Jean Lopez) will have a meltdown that will make Chernobyl look like a snuffed birthday candle.
