a terrible episode in Frist's past, which he hopes voters will forgive
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 10:08 PM by Humor_In_Cuneiform
This is truly sickening, I mean the last part in bold below is terrible for animal, cat lovers especially.


"September 26, 2005
Potholes
ROGER SIMON COLUMN
SEPTEMBER 26, 2005

WASHINGTON - - Bill Frist is a statue in search of a pedestal.


He has a droning, cinderblock speaking style coupled with an unquenchable sense of his own destiny. He is currently the majority leader of the U.S. Senate and would like to be elected President of the United States in 2008..."

(Part cut out to shorten the post)

"...His fellow senator from Tennessee, Lamar Alexander, said a year ago of Frist's presidential possibilities: "He's got the pole position in practical, tactical terms."

But First has run into a few potholes recently.

The difference between pandering and groveling may be a fine one, but Frist seemed to cross the line in March when he questioned the diagnosis that Terri Schiavo was in a persistent vegetative state..."


(Part cut out to shorten the post)

"...Frist has denied any wrongdoing, but the knives are out. "We don't need Martha Stewart in the United States Senate," said former Sen. Max Cleland, D-Ga. (who was defeated in 2002 by a candidate handpicked by Frist.)

And speaking of knives, there is a terrible episode in Frist's past, which he hopes voters will forgive, if not forget: As a medical student, Frist went to animal shelters, asked for cats, pretended he would give them a good home and then cut them to pieces in medical experiments. Years later, he apologized.

He probably will get a pass from the media on this, since it happened years ago and the media will find it beneath the "dignity" of a presidential issue..."

The rest:

5. Yes, loving animals is not a partisan thing.
The full article says he later apologized.

I'm thinking, To Who?

8. He is a psychopath. People like that don't change. Not that I'd forgive
Edited on Thu Sep-29-05 04:54 AM by belle
what he did even if I did believe he actually was "sorry."

But aside from my strong desire to grind him up and feed him to my cat, I firmly believe that anyone who could think like that is a potential mass murderer of humans as well. The only variable is drive and opportunity.
