Howie Kurtz informs us that
Bloggers are swarming around a new target: the Terri Schiavo "talking points."I can't say I'm surprised by this. About ten days ago, in an Eschaton comment thread, someone whose name I didn't recognize alerted us that the Right was trying to cast doubt on the talking points, and exhorted us to rally together to defend their authenticity.
Fresh from declaring victory over CBS News and its discredited National Guard memos about President Bush, some of the same bloggers are raising questions about a strategy memo, first reported by ABC News and The Washington Post, that cast the Schiavo right-to-die case as a partisan opportunity for Republicans to stick it to Democrats.
I asked why I'd want to do that, given that I had absolutely no idea whether they were authentic or not, but my helpful new friend had already moved on to greener pastures.
It'd be interesting to know whether similar comments turned up on other Lefty blogs around the same time.
