Bread and circus. Mainly circus.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, currently under investigation for insider trading and chief bozo of the Terri Schiavo affair, made a grave mistake in front of a bunch of his fans-- he told the truth.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist told Republican Party activists on Friday night that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito was the "worst nightmare of liberal Democrats."

Frist, a Tennessee Republican, made the remark to fellow Republicans during a private tour he gave them of the Senate chamber when the Senate was not in session.

Frist's spokesman quickly went into damage control and explained that Frist's remarks don't represent what Frist actually thinks. So one thing is certain. Either Alito is an 'activist judge' out to foist his ideology on the nation, or Bill Frist is an imbecile who just talks out of his ass. I think the smart money is on 'all of the above.'
