Can Tim Johnson's Situation Be Compared to Terri Schiavo?
Lloydletta commenter Leo suggests it can:
Just wondering, that is, how long it would be before those who called for the death of Terri Schiavo, would prescribe the same "cure" for Senator Tim Johnson, should he fall into a similar condition.
Don't get me wrong. I wish for Senator Tim Johnson a full and speedy recovery; and even if he were to fall into a "persistive vegetative state," I would not wish Schiavo's fate upon him.
But if things do go south for Johnson, will all those who were clamoring for Schiavo's demise have a sudden "come to Jesus" moment and pronounce Johnson not only well and cognizant, but capable of carrying on his duties as Senator?
