What Do You Call A Hypocrite In Washington Part II
"I wouldn't even attempt to make a diagnosis from a videotape." -Bill Frist, June 2005
"I question [Terri Schiavo's diagnosis] based on a review of the video footage. ... And that footage, to me, depicted something very different than persistent vegetative state... she certainly seems to respond to visual stimuli." -Bill Frist, March 2005
Did he change his tune in response to the autopsy, which revealed that Terri, in addition to being irreverably brain damaged, was blind?
Or did he look at the poll numbers, showing that most Americans were against the way Congress intervened in the matter?
Either way, Bill Frist sure has a weak memory. It only took him three months to forget he did, indeed, make a diagnosis by videotape.
Coincidently, the same time he remembered elections are coming up in just over a year.
