Brian Darling, a former lobbyist for the Alexander Strategy Group on gun rights and other issues, offered his resignation and it was immediately accepted, Martinez said. ".....
The unsigned memo -- which initially misspells Schiavo's first name and gives the wrong number for the pending bill -- includes eight talking points in support of the legislation and calls the controversy "a great political issue."
"This legislation ensures that individuals like Terri Schiavo are guaranteed the same legal protections as convicted murderers like Ted Bundy," the memo concludes.
It asserts that the case would appeal to the party's core supporters, saying: "This is an important moral issue and the pro-life base will be excited that the Senate is debating this important issue."


Now that the actual reasons behind the Repuglican's reasons for making this woman's death a political and media circus are being exposed, it is encouraging to see a swing toward the truth being made, however slight that swing is. To help the push that swing futher to one of establishing human rights, and disassembling the current administration's grip on our nation, go to medbhletters and review the petitions and actions that need your attention and help....especially the Nuclear Option, and stopping the appointment of John Bolton to the UN..
