However, that doesn’t mean Larry’s a saint. In fact there are a few bones in this book worth picking one of which is his description of the Terri Schiavo case; specifically, his assertion that many doctors said that she was not in a persistent vegetative state and the lack of effort by Governor Jeb Bush to save her life. First off, there were few doctors who would have said such after her CAT scans, which showed severe cerebral atrophy and her EEG which showed no measurable brain activity. Against that evidence you’re hard pressed to find someone who’d think she could make a recovery. But even then any remaining question would have been put to rest after her autopsy which showed her brain had extensive irreversible brain damage in every region of the brain. In fact, the only reason there was ever any large media whoopee-doo about this was because of Pro-Choice and Pro-Life activists entering and mucking up the place, taking a private sad affair to the national level where both parties were slandered and had their whole lives thrown in front of the media train.
The second bit is that Jeb Bush actually overstepped his boundaries when the rashly passed Terri’s Law gave him the power to intervene and he did. He ordered the feeding tube reinserted until Terri’s Law was suspended because it was deemed unconstitutional for the State Government to have a say in who lives or dies, after which it was removed again. I respect your work, Larry, but you’re entitled to your own opinions, not your own facts.
Overall WHORES: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment is a fun read about slogging through the Clinton era scandals and a first-hand perspective about running for the Senate — with occasional derailing moments such as a conspiracy theory dealing with the death of U.S. Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown in 1996. But his Five Part Plan to Reform the Judicial System near the end of the book is wonderfully thought out and I wholeheartedly support it. I’d recommend this book rather quickly to a conservative reader but not so easily to a liberal one. Larry insists he has no political bias, but when it comes to justice he does gloss over the numerous Bush era scandals and abuses of power while focusing on many of the Clinton era. This’ll likely put off liberal readers as will its aggressive condemnation of the "liberal elite media" and the "bankrupting socialist Obama administration." So while Larry thinks of himself as a non-partisan freedom fighter, the book leans unmistakably right — which is not a bad thing at all as long as the prospective reader is aware of this beforehand.
