UPDATE: Republican members of Congress, when asked to explain their previous opposition to the wishes of Terri Schiavo, had this to say: "Oops."
FURTHER UPDATE: Republicans continue to backpeddle and equivocate, with Senator Bill Frist using a rough equivalent of our old favorite, the Monica Lewinski defense. (i.e. "What is the precise definition of 'sexual relations?'") Jeb Bush, on the other hand, as pointed out by Slag, seems to be trying a somewhat different tactic to get the heat off. Really and truly despicable.
