Apology? Here's your apology, E.J.

Probe Sought in Terri Schiavo 911 Call

Gov. Jeb Bush asked a prosecutor Friday to investigate why Terri Schiavo collapsed 15 years ago, calling into question how long it took her husband to call 911 after he found her.

In a letter faxed to Pinellas-Pasco County State Attorney Bernie McCabe, Bush said Michael Schiavo testified in a 1992 medical malpractice trial that he found his wife collapsed at 5 a.m., and he said in a 2003 television interview that he found her about 4:30 a.m. He called 911 at 5:40 a.m.

"Between 40 and 70 minutes elapsed before the call was made, and I am aware of no explanation for the delay," Bush wrote. "In light of this new information, I urge you to take a fresh look at this case without any preconceptions as to the outcome."

Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment Friday from The Associated Press. In comments in The Miami Herald, he said Terri Schiavo would not have survived if her husband had not immediately called 911.
It really isn't a surprise that someone pulled this from the Team Wingnut playbook; Smear Big and Often worked out so well for the Swift Boat Liars, why wouldn't they try the same general strategy again? Even so, I confess that I wasn't expecting Jebbie to do the deed--racing Doctor Frist to the bottom doesn't strike me as being very savvy given the Boy King's poll numbers these days.

Wonder what Poppy and Bar are talking about at the breakfast table this morning?

It's pretty simple, Doc. Jeb plans to run in 2008, and he knows his only chance lies in taking possession of his brother's base. So he's going to beat this dead horse for the next three years. Sad but true.
