Flipper Denied His Right to Die

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, especially on the day in which the successor to the late-Pope John Paul II was named by the Roman Catholic Church, but I do so only for your benefit in demonstrating once again the incomprehensible hypocrisy of the liberal Democrats in this country. I take the time now to warn everyone that the following information I am about to present directly relates to the Terri Schiavo case and for those who emotionally affected by this event, they may not want to be brought down on such a day of jubilation as this.

For anyone who watched CNN (the Communist New Network, formerly referred to as the Clinton New Network) in the midst of the Terri Schiavo debate this past March, first off, give yourselves a pat on the back, you just performed your charitable deed for the month. And secondly, you will recall one reporter of the struggling cable news network focusing a lot of attention upon the protestors gathering peacefully outside of the hospice where Terri was being held and how he drew comparisons between those protestors and the individuals who murdered abortion doctors within the state ten years prior to this event. The very same individual who covered the Terri Schiavo case for CNN recently reported a story in which he applauded the efforts of volunteers who were rehabilitating dolphins that required feeding tubes to be inserted in them to eat and drink.

Here is a portion of the exact transcript from that report and you can click here to read the rest of it along with insightful, humorous commentary from conservative radio talk-show host, Rush Limbaugh:
The dolphins needed her help. More than two dozen rough tooth dolphins required around-the-clock care. For 25-year-old Kate Banick and the others who came to save the dolphins, this was the most challenging, demanding part of the work, the animals in a penned off area of a rehabilitation facility had to be hand fed three times a day. Members of Banick's team held their mouths open with pieces of cloth as she fed them dead herring. To provide the required round-the-clock care, hundreds came to work four-hour shifts. The volunteers are in the pool 24/7 holding the animals and keeping their blowholes out of the water so they can breathe. A veterinarian injects the dolphins with vitamin E to help with muscle cramping. These mammals are unable to eat on their own. Kate Banick uses a feeding tube to get them the nutrition they need.
