Or the sickest fucker?
The Operation Rescue whackaloon must have run out of synonyms for the words “evil” and “mass-murderer” while he was expressing his profound and sincerest regrets over the most recent Death By Anti-Choicer, Dr. George Tiller, because he’s already moved on to the next target. His new campaign, a rolling roadshow against SCOTUS nominee Sonia Sotomayor, shows that Dr.Tiller’s death must have taught him something about the danger of vicious and rabid rhetoric:
Randall Terry, founder of the right-wing extremist group Operation Rescue, has announced a twelve-city tour intended to convince senators that “[t]o refuse to filibuster [Sotomayor] is to bow in abject obedience to the Angel of Death.”
…or maybe not.
Interestingly, Sotomayor seems pretty moderate overall — her only background with regard to abortion was a case where she found in favour of upholding Bush’s Mexico City Policy. If this is what Terry considers “bowing in abject obedience to the angel of death”, one can only imagine the kind of rhetoric he’d employ if the nominee was more overtly pro-choice.
They never learn. Maybe that guy at the Planned Parenthood in Phoenix is onto something.
