Frist and his unholy halo

Love this pic from the latest issue of Newsweek. The Howard Fineman piece reports that 31 of the 165 members of Frist’s medical-school class accused him of using his medical degree improperly.

Lewis Rose, an oncologist who said he voted for Bush last year, insisted Frist had overstepped in the Schiavo case. “He had no right to use the cloak of the Hippocratic oath, no matter who was right,” Rose told NEWSWEEK. “He’s got medical training and a medical perspective, but he is not a practicing physician and has no business using that in politics. Period. If he does, he won’t get any of his classmates’ votes who signed this.”
