Damn. I was all set to do a lengthy Church Lady-type victory dance over how that Terri Schiavo "Here's how the GOP can benefit from her suffering politically" memo really did turn out to be written by a GOP lowlife, but (via Pharyngula), someone already beat me to it.
And the best part? In the finest spirit of Weasel Boy, those wankers over at PowerLine haven't apologized. They're still in damage control mode, trying to salvage their reputations and blame everyone else:
HINDROCKET adds: A reader asks a good question: Where has Tom Harkin been for the last two and a half weeks? If he had come forward on March 19 or 20, there never would have been a "talking points memo" story, or at least not much of a story. The truth--that an obscure Republican staffer wrote a dumb memo that hardly anyone saw--would scarcely have created a ripple. The whole point of the story, as initially reported, was that the document was an official "GOP memo," created by the party's leadership and broadly circulated to the party's Senators. If Harkin had told what he knew promptly, that story never would have been written, or would have been promptly spiked. So it seems likely that Harkin stayed quiet because he wanted the false account to circulate; indeed, he may have been the source of the misinformation promulgated by ABC and the Post. But then, why did Harkin come forward yesterday? Again, the most obvious answer does Harkin no credit: with speculation increasingly focusing on the Democrats as the likely source of the memo, it was in his party's interest to come forward, even at the risk of exposing the falsity of the early reporting on the memo.
Yeah, the memo was written by a Republican but, somehow, it's a Democrat's fault. Delightful.
UPDATE: Not surprisingly, TBogg is all over this as well (and make sure you follow the links). Apparently, being a right-wing wanker means never having to say you're sorry. Or wrong. Or that it's your fault. Even a little bit.
