Schiavo: those GOP talking points

ABC have provided (what they say is) a
memo listing talking points on the Terri Schiavo case [which] was circulated among Republican senators on the floor of the Senate. This is an exact, full copy of the document obtained exclusively by ABC News and first reported Friday, March 18, 2005, by Linda Douglass on "World News Tonight with Peter Jennings."

(There is no relevant S 529, per the memo's heading [1]: S 539 is one of the many Schiavo bills that fell by the wayside.)

The bill signed into law was S 686.

I'm listening to Randi Rhodes - for once - and she said (something to the effect that) ABC released the text of the memo only after she badgered the producer of a segment on Schiavo she was supposed to be in.

  1. Not sic-ed by ABC, I note. Did they check THOMAS?
