Starved For Justice

Oh, how I love Ann Coulter:

Just once, we need an elected official to stand up to a clearly incorrect ruling by a court. Any incorrect ruling will do, but my vote is for a state court that has ordered a disabled woman to be starved to death at the request of her adulterous husband.

Our Federal Judiciary has become the Fiat Judiciary.
Can someone - anyone - explain to me why federal judges get lifetime appointments? Can someone explain why We The People get to vote our confidence in judges at the state level, but not at the federal level (except, perhaps, the appellate courts, if I remember correctly)? I think I'm going to look into that question, and pose it to Senator Talent.
If Terry Schiavo is allowed to die, her husband should be charged with murder, and Judge Greer should be impeached for incompetence, arrogance, and sticking the middle finger at the US Congress by ignoring a Congressional subpoena.
How the party that rejoices at sucking a living, breathing, unborn child from a womb with a vacuum, and allowing a living, breathing, handicapped woman to die of starvation and dehydration can claim to be the party of compassion and humanity, I will never understand.
