More on Terri

Lesbien C'est Moi, who has the, ahem, high honor of being the first liberal added to my Bloggers In Arms blogroll, still has a lot of fight left in her.

And she's pretty pissed at Michael Schiavo's attorneys*:

... In order to win a large malpractice suit for his client, [Michael Schiavo's attorney at the time] stated Terri's life expectancy was approximately 50 years. This was one of his few true statements. But [a later Schiavo lawyer] then orchestrates (thru his influence on the Hospice Board) stowing Terri away in the Hospice system, stating her life expectancy at 6 months or less....

I don't know her use of the word "fraud," per se, but it does seem a little strange to claim a woman is going to live for 50 years when you want to get a big malpractice settlement, and then decide that she just has to be euthanized as quickly as possible.

I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have gotten that big malpractice award had he informed the jury his client intended to pull the plug shortly after the case was over.

And... Frequent commenter See-Dubya is guest-blogging at Patterico's Pontifications, and he too has some hypotheticals he'd like to see answered by libertarians.

Great post. "Great" in the sense that it proves the power of the blogosphere -- really, any retard with a keyboard and AOL can put his stupid moronthoughts out there for other cretins to drool over.

*Correction! Cal points out, correctly as it turns out (damn it all), that George Felos was not Michael Schiavo's attorney for the malpractice case; a lawyer named Daniel Grieco was.

I have edited Lesbien C'est Moi's post to preserve the basic point-- whoever Michael's attorneys were, it's still the case they were representing him, and argued one thing for the malpractice trial and another thing entirely when trying to get the tube yanked -- but Cal is quite right LCB and I both blew the facts.

She's annoying like that, with her "facts" and "citations" and shit, and I'm pretty much ready to ban her right now for embarassing me again.
