Terri Schiavo and the Pope on Feeding Tubes

Nearly a month ago I wrote a bit of satire I titled, "Florida Judge Orders Pope Removed from Life Support."

Today I learn via Decision '08 that the Pope is actually receiving nutrition through a feeding tube. Where are all the right to die death cult members now?

In another bizarre twist Glenn Beck uncovers a CBS story announcing the death of Terri Schiavo two-days ago. I wonder if they've written a similar obituary for the Pope yet? Scared Monkeys has more.

Why does Monty Python and the Holy Grail suddenly come to mind? Only this time, it's not so funny.

UPDATE: Pennywit notes that the CBS story was probably just a screw up and that obituaries are often written in advance. I seem to recall a Saturday Night Live skit about this.......

UPDATE II: James Joyner points me to Terri Schiavo's blog. Disgusting. If you think the blog is bad, read the comments. Hell has a special place for some of those nutjobs.
