Dr. Tiller's Assassin Chats With the AP

In a call from jail to the AP Dr. Tiller's assassin disputed characterizations in the news media of him as being anti-government, saying he is "anti-corrupt government."

This makes me wonder if one line of defense will be that shooting Dr. Tiller in the head while he was attending church is justifiable as an anti-corrupt government action.

After all, Mary Kay Culp, executive director of Kansans for Life, and former Kansas Attorney General Phill "the patient chart thieve" Kline did point out that government corruption was the reason for Dr. Tiller's acquittal of misdemeanor charges stemming from medical procedures he performed:

Mary Kay Culp, executive director of Kansans for Life, said abortion opponents were never confident that Tiller would be prosecuted aggressively enough by the current attorney general.

"Even if Tiller had been found guilty, he would have appealed to the Supreme Court," Culp said, noting that four of the Kansas high court's seven justices were appointed by Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who supports abortion rights.

Kline, the former attorney general who started the investigation, expressed frustration at the prosecutors who tried the case, noting that their only witness was Neuhaus.

"You do not win cases nor achieve justice by calling one witness and ordering your staff not to initiate any additional effort to gather evidence," Kline said in a written statement.

I truly do hate to be the bearer of bad (well, worse) tidings, but the terrorists are apparently winning:

"President Barack Obama has tapped an anti-abortion activist to a senior Health and Human Services "faith-based" position just a week after the murder of prominent abortion doctor George Tiller.

Alexia Kelley is executive director of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good (CACG), and will head the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the Department of Health and Human Services."

Leaving aside the question of why there exists a faith-based position at Health and Human Services, I can only ask myself if Mr. Obama is, at last, just that tone-deaf.

On top of everything condolences. To all of us.

Thank you for alerting me and what can I say but Wow! (Well, and maybe this: Obama's Appointee Alexia Kelley Should Help Dr. Tiller's Assassin Obtain Federal Funds for Reducing Abortion.)
