A True Blood Boiler

This is truly sickening:

In a decision likely to strike many observers as cruel, a federal appeals court ordered the father of a Marine killed in Iraq whose funeral drew protesters from a church notorious for such demonstrations to pay the church leader’s $16,510 in legal fees.

… Snyder won his case against Westboro in the lower court but that decision was overturned by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in September.

Losers in such cases often are made to pay legal fees and the appeals court may have just been following that common practice.

Cassy Fiano adds:

It’s bad enough the Fred Phelps and his band of lowlifes are emerging victorious in this. The judge apparently wants to rub salt into the hero’s father’s wound. I just cannot believe that a judge can be so heartless and cruel.

Well, I can, but it doesn’t make me any less angry.

The American Legion has apparently stepped up to help the Snyders with expenses, but if you'd like to contribute, go here.

Just when you think the liberal Left has reached the lowest level of the sewers, they find a way to break through to whole new levels.

There's my two cents.

***UPDATE***
Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has volunteered to pay Snyder's legal fees.  Patriot!
