Bill Frist To Take Health Care Legislation To Prom, Get It Pregnant

“[The bill] has many strong elements,” Frist added later. “And those elements, whatever happens, need to be preserved, need to be cuddled, need to be snuggled, need to be promoted and need to be implemented. But how do you do it? How do you do a lot of what is in this law?” Read more on Bill Frist To Take Health Care Legislation To Prom, Get It Pregnant…

Bush Considered Running With Bill Frist In 2004, But Cheney Said No

Although Bush did not like Cheney’s image as described by critics, accepting his resignation offer would help “demonstrate that I was in charge,” he writes. Bush said he talked to aides about asking Republican Sen. Bill Frist to run with him instead of Cheney, but ultimately stuck with Cheney because he valued his steady hand.

Yet Another Shocking Election Result In Nowhereville

Angry voters in a state dominated by conservative white people have turned on their long-running Congressman! Alan Mollohan has represented the good people of his slice of West Virginia for 28 years now, but his support for that tax-demon Obama’s various West Virginia-destroying schemes, like cap-and-trade and the health care plan that will pay for abortions for everybody, finally did him in, and he was so hated that voters preferred State Senator Mike Oliverio, whose name ends in a vowel. Is this terrible news for the Democrats? Read more on Yet Another Shocking Election Result In Nowhereville… Read more on Yet Another Shocking Election Result In Nowhereville…

Various Somewhat-Republican People With No Congressional Power Endorse NobamaKare!

Dare we call this a ROLL-OUT? MMHMM. After only eight months, and with health care reform shockingly enough moving forward and almost (almost!) out of committee, a few random Republicans and ex-Republicans and pretend Republican movie stars have decided, “We like this thing, the Obama health care reform, and we don’t care who knows!” (Well, Bill Frist does kind of care who knows, which is why he’s walking his support back. Whoopsy Doctor Bill!) Read more on Various Somewhat-Republican People With No Congressional Power Endorse NobamaKare!…

Special RNC Stage Could Not Be More Phallic

That’s former Senator Bill Frist you see speaking on tonight’s redesigned RNC stage, with a lovely projection of the African plains at dusk as his backdrop. You know what else is a projection?

Which Horrible Democrat Failure Will Determine Your Vote This Year?

On the website of VOLPAC — the PAC of former Senate majority leader Dr. Bill Frist — there is a “2008 Republican Leadership Survey,” where the good Doctor Frist wants your take on some of the important issues this election season. You know, things along the lines of, “If the Democrats claim to want to do such great things for America, then why are they gay?” Or, as Stephen Colbert likes to say, “George W. Bush — great president, or the greatest president?” Some of our favorites from this survey, below. Read more on Which Horrible Democrat Failure Will Determine Your Vote This Year?…
 

Reaganesque: Fred Thompson Is Already Senile

The GOP primary’s great white hope, Hollywood Fred Thompson, is either purposefully trying to derail his campaign before Halloween so he can lazily enjoy the winter holidays, or he’s so Reaganesque that he’s going senile before the election. Nothing else could explain his bizarre tone-deaf response to questions about the southern conservative primary voter’s own personal version of the Crucifixion story: the tragic removal of Terry Schiavo’s feeding tube two years ago.

“DOG-KILLER-MARRIER” to be Added to Stock Rudy Description

It was a bad weekend for Rudy Giuliani. First, his BFF Bernie Kerik is about to be indicted for being too bold and effective on 9/11 (and fucking Judith Regan, which has been a felony since a 9/12 executive order). And, oh hey, it turns out that Rudy’s head of the Department of Investigations might’ve had up to five meetings with the mayor to talk about crazy, corrupt ol’ Bernie. But all that stuff’s complicated — much more newsworthy: Rudy’s 12th wife will cut open and brutally vivisect your dog. Read more on “DOG-KILLER-MARRIER” to be Added to Stock Rudy Description…
