Terri Schiavo Afterthoughts

Over the weekend I missed blogging on a lot of big news, with the Pope passing away being the most significant event by far. However, even though Terri Schiavo's autopsy has been performed and she has been cremated, her story is not over. We will see another autopsy of sorts take place over the next few months, perhaps longer. The post-mortem I refer to will shine a light on the true feelings of Americans towards "the disposable among us."

The tip of the iceberg is found here, a poll by Zogby International (hat tip: PowerLine). I'm going to predict big problems for the politicians who did nothing for Terri Schiavo, and another black eye for the MSM, who once again failed to get a big story correct.

UPDATE: 4/4/2005 7:50am: Heh. As soon as I post something I find more information. Hugh Hewitt linked an article this morning that is a must-read. It's written by John Leo for U.S. News & World Report, called "End of the Affair." Here's a few samples:
The behavior of conservatives: Uneven and sometimes awful, with lots of vituperation and extreme charges.

The behavior of liberals: Mystifying. While conservative opinion was severely splintered, liberal opinion seemed monolithic: Let her die.

The behavior of the news media: Terrible. "Pro-life" columnist Nat Hentoff of the Village Voice called it "the worst case of liberal media bias I've seen yet."
Read the whole thing. Maybe this will be even more of a black eye for the media than I originally thought.
