Lefties are totally responsible for this F'upped execution. The old drugs of Sodium Pentothal, Succinylcholine, and Potassium Chloride worked very well.

But then, unable to stop executions by legal manipulations, the antideathpenalty types got in cahoots with the drug suppliers to prevent the manufacture of Sodium Pentothal. Aided by the fact that most all drug manufacturing is no longer done in the US.

So the search went on for alternate drugs. Which aren't as good.

I've no idea why Propofol/Succinyl/Potassium can't do the job. It worked fine on Michael Jackson without the need for the other two components.
