Well fortunately we have now gotten to the bottom of the Schiavo Memo flap. It is good to have an unabmiguous ending to this, unlike Rathergate, where the origins of the memos are still a mystery.
Should the blogs that flogged this as a democratic forgery apologize? No. The memo sure looked like a fake - it misspelled Schiavo's name, and got the number of the proposed legislation wrong, and the tone of the memo just seemed off.
Should the blogs that flogged this as a democratic forgery issue retractions? No, and why should they? Again, it walked and talked like a duck. Until the origin of the memo was firmly established, the possibility that it was a forgery was certainly fair game (given the Rathergate affair, especially).
No, the proper response by the floggers is an update
We have the answer now! It came from the republicans after all!
As you were.
