John Gibson offers some last-minute legal advice to Jeb Bush: Go commando. In his Fox News monologue last night, Gibson threw caution -- and metaphorical consistency -- to the wind and urged Governor Bush to "give serious thought to storming the Bastille," by which he meant, "telling his cops to go over to Terri Schiavo's hospice, go inside, put her on a gurney and load her into an ambulance. They could take her to a hospital, revive her, and reattach her feeding tube."
Addressing concerns that this act would be oh, illegal, Gibson fumes, is "the temple of the law is so sacrosanct that an occasional chief executive cannot flaunt it once in a while?" We sort of hope so! Yet Gibson has a point. In tragic situations like this, which raise deep questions about the meaning and dignity of human life, shouldn't, as Gibson says "the occasional chief executive" "drop his drawers on the courthouse steps and moon the judges"?
We call that "the nuclear option."
