Judge George Greer, the poor guy responsible for the Terri Schiavo case, styles himself a "compassionate conservative". And as he considers himself bound by law to order what would have happened in another case long ago, he's feeling the compassion of his fellow conservatives:
- "It's killing me to watch him struggle with this," said Mary Repper, a retired political consultant who worked on several of Judge Greer's campaigns. "Armed guards with him all the time. People threatening to kill him and claiming it has something to do with the right to life - explain that, will you?"
Well, gosh. Liberals have been asking questions like that for years.
