WHAT CAN ONE SAY?

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said this yesterday about Terri Schiavo:
Like other Republican lawmakers championing Schiavo's bill, DeLay often suggests she is alert and potentially treatable.
"She talks and she laughs and she expresses likes and discomforts," he said Sunday evening. "It won't take a miracle to help Terri Schiavo. It will only take the medical care and therapy that patients require."
For those keeping score at home, that statement is a straight-up, non-fungible, unambiguous, and utterly unconscionable lie. And if you were watching cable news yesterday (as I was), its probably safe to say you never heard anyone call DeLay out on it, or any number of similarly, knowingly fallacious statements spewing forth from the mouths of our national political leaders.
