Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...

For the last week or so Drudge and the other right-wing stooges have been flogging a story that the infamous "Shiavo Memo" advising Republicans how they could use her plight to their advantage, was a plant. Oops. That particular lie is no longer operative. Some flunky was forced to cop the plea and commit sepuku.
The legal counsel to Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) admitted yesterday that he was the author of a memo citing the political advantage to Republicans of intervening in the case of Terri Schiavo, the senator said in an interview last night.

Mike Allen has the story in the Washington Post
