Terri Schiavo side-story

The hullabaloo about the "GOP talking points memo," found on the floor of the Senate.

Bigger names than I are writing about it, so I limit my remarks to simple comments (I don't have the time, the inclination or anything else to pursue a story like this):

Fake but inaccurate.

At Powerline, there's an interesting little blurb about some of the specifics in the memo. The memo, purported to come from somewhere in the power-structure of the Republican Senate, refers specifically to bill S. 529 as the bill that the Senate voted on over the weekend.

A Powerline reader did some digging and found that bill S.529 actually "is a bill introduced by Grassley on 3-3-05 to establish a US anti-doping agency." Research confirms it.

Are you kidding me with this stuff? As the Powerline guys say, the burden of proof is now on ABC and the WaPo who have run with this story to explain that they haven't been snookered.
