Schadenfreude Cake with Instant karma

Instant Karma gonna get you
Gonna knock you right in the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead

What in the world you thinking of?
Laughing in the face of love
What on Earth you tryna do?
It’s up to you, yeah, you:

A Kansas disciplinary panel said Thursday that former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline should be indefinitely suspended from practicing law in the state because of the “dishonest and selfish” way he pursued abortion clinics.

The recommendation of the attorney disciplinary board culminates a turbulent six-year period in which Kline — as attorney general and later Johnson County district attorney — presided over investigations of the late George Tiller’s abortion clinic in Wichita and Planned Parenthood in Overland Park.

Now that’s a nice sight to see on a sunny Friday.  Phill Kline, the fetus fetishizing ex-Kansas A-G who relentlessly pursued Dr. George Tiller for years and for naught, is finally getting his comeuppance.  And it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy: apart from Scott Roeder, no one person has more of Dr. Tiller’s blood on his hands than Phill (yes, he really spells it with 2 L’s) Kline.

It isn’t hyperbole to say Kline was obsessed with Tiller.  His entire term as Kansas A-G was devoted to a legal harassment crusade against the doctor.  For 6 years Kline, in and out of office, routinely dragged Tiller into court on goofy trumped-up charges that were either cleared or dismissed.   Now just imagine the brain-damaged Scott Roeder observing all this, his fragile mind spiraling into ever more savage fury as he watches the courts vindicate the doctor time and again, in case after case.  Until finally he decides to mete out his own kind of justice.

So, good:  ass righteously kicked by karma, Phill (2 L’s, seriously) is finally being put out to pasture where he can’t bother anyone.  The closest he’ll get to abusing (I hesitate to call what Kline did “practicing”) law is his professorship at Falwell’s respected *cough* “Liberty School of Law”.  That’s the dollop of whipped cream on the schadenfreude cake.

And we all shine on…

    I lived in Johnson County, KS for 5 1/2 years and ,Phill (yes, 2 L’s),
    has a lot of supporters unfortunately. Thankfully I am now back in
    Canada, but if we don’t watch out, the likes of Phill (yes 2 L’s) will
    become more commonplace. The book “What’s the Matter With Kansas”
    is a good read to see how the state of Kansas became what it is now.
    It happens in a slow, sneaky and deliberate way.

    My second-favourite Lennon song. So appropriate to your post.

    “…on his hands than Phill (yes, he really spells it with 2 L’s) Kline”

    He has another brother Phil (1 L). That’s how they tell them apart. 🙂

    Does the third sibling say to other people “… and this is my brother Phill and my other brother Phil…” ?? 🙂

    Hi Janice.
    I think I read some excerpts from WTMWK a few years ago, but really should read the book. For sure its a great example of how this kind of thing (ie. anti-choice extremism) worms its way into society’s mainstream.

    Anti-choicers have for years talked about “incrementalism” — the slow, bit by bit dismantling of reproductive rights with laws about one small aspect of it after another. Until finally a state finds itself in the position where access is so limited that abortion may as well be illegal 😦

    So much easier that way, giving kids different names is a little hard to keep track of.

Wait. What?
