Bush: Pro-Life?

A week or so ago on The Daily Show Jon Stewart, noting yet another example of American hypocrisy, observed that the Bush administration is making the world safe for irony.

The line came to mind this morning when the NYT reported that President Bush, speaking about the necessity of signing the law designed to save Terri Schiavo's life, said: "It Is Wisest to Always Err on the Side of Life."


This from the same politician who:

*approved the sentencing to death of over 100 people in Texas when he was governor.
*approved said executions after reportedly spending an average of 15 minutes reviewing each case
*smirked (according to Tucker Carlson) when he remembered the final cries for help from a Christian woman who was executed while he was governor
*sent soldiers to fight a war of choice on dubious and shifting grounds
*cut off aid to world groups that fight AIDS because they educated clients about abortion (they didn't perform abortions; they just told clients about them)

I could go on.

But you can readily supply your own list.
