"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Frist Gets First Clue

Senator Bill 'Insider Trading' Frist has told Meet the Press that he's learned that Americans don't want the government making 'end of life' decisions. DUH! This is the guy who pushed the Terry Schaivo support bill, against the advice of all the doctors providing care. Remember all that "Culture of Life" bull crap?

An autopsy later showed that Schiavo had suffered severe, irreversible brain damage and was blind.

Frist, R-Tenn., said in the full Senate that he supported what he called "an opportunity to save Mrs. Schiavo's life." A heart surgeon, Frist had viewed video ordered by a court and taken by a board-certified neurologist who had concluded she was not in a persistent vegetative state.

So, Frist - a cardiac specialist - looked at a video and made a diagnosis contrary to the neurological specialists caring for Mrs. Schaivo. Now, he denies making a diagnosis (apparently it's a term somehow regulated by the AMA in such a way that he can deny making one), but he used that unmade diagnosis to muster up a law requiring further support in violation of the order to pull the plug on her. Thank God our courts didn't support that action.

His second-guessing of the experts for political purposes sounds a lot like Bush cooking intelligence and ignoring Pentagon advice about Iraq. Do we really want another 'fangers-in-his-ears, yelling Na, Na, Na I can't hear you' president? No, sugar, I don't think so!

Take what you want, leave what you don't.
