Dr. Frist? Not so fast!

Bill Frist may have just lost his medical license.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist acknowledged Tuesday that he may not have met all the requirements needed to keep his medical license active - even though he gave paperwork to Tennessee officials indicating that he had.

He was widely criticized last year for injecting himself into the debate over Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida woman whose feeding tube was removed. Frist viewed a videotape of the woman, then publicly questioned the diagnosis of her doctors. An autopsy later confirmed their judgment, not his.

(Insert joke about video diagnostic techniques here)

It's too bad, really. I understand that he was a far better at being surgeon than he is at being a Senator...but that's not saying much.

Hopefully, Harold Ford will win Frist's Senate seat, and then we can all watch gleefully as Frist fails miserably in his run for President.

All these Repugs are brought down in the end by their weaknesses. It gives me hope.

Plus, it's fun to watch.

Unquestionably imagine that which you said. Your favorite
reason appeared to be at the net the easiest thing to be mindful of.
I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst other people think about
worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail
upon the top and outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , folks can take a signal.

Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
