Two Tales of a Memo
Oooo, that pesky Schiavo memo. Actually, I didn't find it all that disturbing or shocking; one would be naive to think that it doesn't represent business as usual everyday inside the beltway, from both sides of the aisle; that's the pragmatic reality of politics. As well, the stiffie "support" of Schiavo already looked like naked politics to even the most disconnected observer. The issue was deftly dismissed by the rightie leadership as "RatherGate II", & would have died if the zealots had let it fade into the news fog of the Vatican.....
Well, the Mooney Times would not, and set about to teach those war-and-freedom-hating bleeders a lesson with their nifty scientific survey.
But today the tide turned with a feeble rightie admission (as it was no doubt about to bust wide open) though the admission was riddled with caveats such as "I don't know how it got on my computer", "I don't how it got printed and in my hands", "I don't know how it got from my hands to others". (as Jon Stewart would say, "now, uuhh, not that much" or Gilda Radner as Miss Emily Litella, "Never mind!!!")
Actual copy of memo.
