If Bill Frist becomes President, would we start calling him “Slick Willie”, too? I’d never heard of the guy until Trent Lott made the P.C. crowd made by praising Strom Thurmond, but now Frist’s taking on W on stem cell research! Says Jill Zuckman of the Chicago Tribune.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist’s announcement Friday that he would support federal funding of embryonic stem cell research sparked outrage among Christian conservatives and may signal a rift within the Republican Party in advance of the 2008 elections.
Good for you, Bill. Much as the moral minority likes to keep things static, there are times that we simply have to move ahead or become irrelevant. This is one of them.
