Wow, and you people think Kerry is a scumbag? It seems that they both are! Did anyone else hear about this? It happened back in 1998. The first female to be executed in Texas since the 1800's, named Karla Tucker, who was a born-again Christian, and was a minister in prison. In an interview with Talk Magazine, Bush mocked Karla's plea for clemency by pursing his lips, squinting his eyes, and saying "Please don't kill me" in a mocking way.

ROFL KERRY IS EVIL, AND BUSH IS JUST AN ANGEL, AINT HE?

Make no mistake. Karla Faye Tucker was an ax murderer who deserved the death penalty that she got. Bush was under great pressure to give clemency to the "born-again Christian" who "was a minister in prison", but he did the right thing in this case and allowed the justice system to legally put to death this ax murderer, as sentenced by a jury of her peers.

"Tucker later related that when she and Garrett entered the apartment bedroom, she put a pickax to Dean's head and Dean began begging for his life. Tucker struck him with the pickax 28 times, and expressed that every time she struck Dean she received sexual gratification. Deborah Thornton was hiding under some sheets in the bedroom, and because the lights were on and Dean had said Tucker's name several times, Tucker and Garrett decided to kill her as well. Leibrant testified that, after he was called into the apartment by Garrett, he heard a gurgling noise in the bedroom, walked back to the bedroom, and witnessed Tucker pull the pickax out of a body, smile, and hit it again. Leibrant then left the scene, but later helped Garrett dispose of Dean's car later that evening. The bodies were discovered by a co-worker who came to check up on Dean when he did not show up for work that morning. The pickax was found lodged in the chest of Deborah Thornton."

Here's what appears to be a photocopy of the article you're referring to:

And what had Karla Tucker done to warrent her execution? Did she kill someone in cold blood, and was Bush mimicking the plea of her victim just before she slaughtered them?

Now if you want to criticize Bush for being evil, or at least misguided, why don't you cite his responsibility for the ongoing killing of tens of thousands of Iraqi citizens and Iraqi and American soldiers at a cost to the American taxpayers of hundreds of billions of dollars, with all the original justifications for such having already been discredited; and his insistence on continuing this effort there now to establish a Government in the image of the one in the United States, which many of their people don't want.

Perhaps your outrage over Bush's callousness towards Tucker is explained by the words of Russia's former leader Stalin who executed millions of his own people. He said: "One death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic."

Bush evil in his heart? I don't know about that. But is something wrong with him? Ah, duhh...yeah.

I remember that case very well and being anti-death penalty I think she should have spent the rest of her life in jail.

But what else who one expect from a self proclaimed left wing bleeding heart liberal who did not and will not vote for Dubya. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Apparently his compassionate nature started young:

"Shooting frogs with BB guns was apparently pretty standard entertainment for young boys in Texas in the 1950s. But for added amusement, George W. Bush and his friends used to tuck firecrackers into the mouths of frogs, throw them in the air, and watch them explode."

Bush ain't got nothin on Kery. When Kerry was a kid on Safari in Tanzania, he stuck dynamite up elephant's rear ends! AND kept his hands clean!
