He Didn't Say It
Republican Midget Mickey Kaus, still working off of Mel Martinez' 2005 talking points, fantasizes about Tim Noah's testicles:
He said it: Only Slate's Tim Noah, however, has had the balls to prematurely speculate about a partisan Schiavo do-si-do in which Tom DeLay suddenly realizes that 'quality of life' is what counts, while Democrats discover that maybe the Schiavo conservatives had a point. ... 2:35 P.M.
In fact, if you click on the link, Noah says nothing about Democrats, or partisans, or a do-si-do at all. What Noah says is:
I heartily endorse DeLay's good wishes. But the political scenarist in me can't suppress curiosity about whether, in the awful event that Johnson should end up on life support, DeLay would once again support legislation blocking any attempts to remove the feeding tube. "It is more than just Terry Schiavo," he told Time magazine in March 2005. Is it, though? Even with a Senate majority hanging in the balance? DeLay probably isn't such a partisan monster that he'd reverse field entirely and declare publicly that the man has suffered enough. More likely, DeLay would hold his tongue, "out of respect for the family," and quietly tell himself that Paris is worth a mass. (The latest news on Johnson's condition is hopeful, thank God, so DeLay is probably off the hook.)The slaphead Kaus lacks the balls to attribute his own premature ejaculations to himself. No wonder Tom DeLay has Kaus on his blogroll.
And exactly what point did conservatives have, Kaus?
