Culture of life my ass

The Supreme Court delivered a nice smackdown to Bush and his empire of evil today, basically telling them to keep their slimy mitts off Oregon's assisted suicide law. As soon as I saw the headlines, I knew it was only a matter of time before some empty-headed administration dimwit would dust off the phrase "culture of life."

Sure enough, from an AP article on the internets:

"White House press secretary Scott McClellan said, "The president remains fully committed to building a culture of life, a culture of life that is built on valuing life at all stages." (Click on this posting's title for the entire Yahoo/AP article.)

Tell that to the 2000+ Americans who have died in the desert in the last few years. Never mind the untold thousands of Iraqi lives lost in this fruitless, illegal, immoral "war". What about the millions that are going to die from diseases that could be eradicated using stem cells?

Fucking hypocrite.

At this writing there are 1098 days left in this reign of terror. Of course, we could end up with someone worse, though at this point it's hard to imagine how...
