Bill Frist: Up is the new down.

Bill Frist, appearing on Hannity & Colmes, pretty much sums up what's wrong with the Republican party these days.

Let's see here, Congress has raised the debt ceiling five times to accomodate unprecedented foreign debt, and we're seeing some of the worst violence in Iraq since the invasion, can't even control the capital, and have lost 2,600 Americans and over 300 billion dollars. Oh, and Osama bin Laden is still at large after nearly five years. The official GOP response?

"We're for tax cuts. They're for tax hikes. We're for staying the course in Iraq and the War on Terror. They're for cutting and running."

How about this: "We're for banging our heads against the wall. They lack the resolve to keep at it." In the storied Republican gift for campaign language, this pretty much sums up why every Republican should be thrown from office this fall.
