Definition of the Day (Syllogistic Hypocrisy #4)

Filed under: — Different River @ 6:04 pm

A liberal is someone who believes that convicted wife-and-baby-killer Scott Peterson should live, but innocent-but-disabled Terri Schiavo should die.

Or, more particularly, that convicted wife-and-baby-killer Scott Peterson should be spared the death penalty (because the state has no right to kill someone), but innocent-but-disabled Terri Schiavo should die a slow and painful death from dehydration (because that’s what the judge ordered).

Fortunately, there are a few liberals out there who may prove this definition wrong — if indeed they remain liberals.
