Frist wants to lose.
Advertisements [?]
Frist can say he tried to deliver the judges to the power-hungry fundies, but the mean old Democrats and moderate Republicans wouldn't let him. Then he has an issue for 2006 and credentials for 2008.

If Frist actually prevails on the nuclear option and gets the fundies a handful of trog judges, what is in it for him? Nothing but trouble in 2006 and backlash from moderate Repubs in 2008.

Frist is just following the tried and true Karl Rove way of dealing with the semi-sane fundies. Talk their code words, give them a little raw meat from time to time, but don't let them off their chains.
