Jeb Bush seeks to punish Michael Schiavo

    vin·dic·tive (vin-'dik-tiv)
    1. Disposed to seek revenge; revengeful.
    2. Marked by or resulting from a desire to hurt; spiteful.
      The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
With Terri Schiavo finally at rest, Jeb Bush has decided it's time for a little payback, and he's set his sights on Michael Schiavo. Read all about it. Bush got a prosecutor to agree to investigate why Terri Schiavo collapsed.

Their "justification" for this? According to records, Michael Schiavo called 911 at 5:40 a.m. Two years later, at a 1992 medical malpractice trial, he said she collapsed at 5 a.m. Thirteen years later, in a 2003 television interview, he said he found her at about 4:30 a.m.

This is dispicable. This is a new low. This is worse than anything they've done so far.

This is... just plain evil.

This is the brilliance of Karl Rove.

I mean think about it for a second - the Downing Street Memo is starting to finally gain some legs. It has the potential to literally make Bush the New Nixon and tank the entire Administration. Meanwhile, you've got the Radical Religious Right dying for "payback".

Now if you're Karl Rove, you know that nothing would command the attention of the country and the press more than the govenor of Florida going after Michael Schiavo, Fox news giving plenty of news coverage to the story, and the main stream media going right for it, the liberals decrying the insanity of the situation, and the country thrown into controversy again.

And the Downing Street Memo dies.

If you're Karl Rove, there's no way you're not asking George for Jeb's phone number.
