Move to recuse

Yeah. Yeah. Innocent until found guilty, blah, blah, blah. Whatever. The fact is , Bill Frist shouldn’t even come within a mile of helping to elect a Supreme Court justice when his case could end up in front of that justice one day.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Sunday he is prepared to strip Democrats of their to ability to filibuster if they try to stall Samuel Alito’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

“The answer is yes,” Frist said when asked if he would act to change Senate procedures to restrict a Democratic filibuster. “Supreme Court justice nominees deserve an up-or-down vote, and it would be absolutely wrong to deny him that.”

Insert your favorite Harriet Meiers joke here.

Not that Frist doesn’t share some of the qualities that Alito has put on display. They’re both ethically challenged (Alito – Vanguard….Frist – Columbia/HCA) and they both lie (Alito….Frist).

I guess there are some who feel that these two are the cream of the Republican crop, but it’s always helpful to remember that, while cream rises to the top so does scum.
