Frist is so clueless, he actually exposed what a a cold-hearted sumbitch he is in his own autobiography, "Transplant". I'm guessing he didn't realize that actual caring human beings would disapprove of his visiting animal shelters in the Boston suburbs, collecting cats, taking them home, treating them as pets for a few days, then taking them to the lab to die.
'It was, of course, a heinous and dishonest thing to do, and I was totally schizoid about the entire matter. By day, I was little Billy Frist, the boy who lived on Bowling Avenue in Nashville and had decided to become a doctor because of his gentle father and a dog named Scratchy. By night, I was Dr. William Harrison Frist, future cardiothoracic surgeon, who was not going to let a few sentiments about cute, furry little creatures stand in the way of his career. In short, I was going a little crazy.'Frist has since commented about the power he felt when holding the last beats of a dog's heart in his hand. Wonder what happened to poor old Scratchy?
"Little Billy Frist", fits a profile of the serial killer in Wikipedia "future serial killers often kill animals, like dogs and cats, and frequently for their solitary enjoyment rather than to impress peers" It wouldn't unthinkable to have a serial killer president (Frist) following the mass murderer president we have now.
On the other hand, if Chris Matthews has influence, our next president will be Mean McCain. If you watch closely when Matthews talks to McCain you can see him fantasizing about humping McCain's leg.
In 1998, at a Republican fundraiser, McCain said that "the reason Chelsea Clinton is so ugly" is that "she's the child of Janet Reno and Hillary Clinton."
Besides being homophobic, his remarks were cruel to Chelsea who was a child and not a political personality. McCain's insensitivity to his own family is evident by his willingness to make nice with Bush after Bush's Brain (Turdblossom or shit-for-brains) started a smear campaign against McCain's family in South Carolina during a contested primary race.
So I'm putting my money on McCain if we can pry Matthews off his leg. All the other biggies in the corporate press are also in love with McCain.
Anybody think Guliani will get the nomination? He was awarded sainthood, by the corporate media, after 9/11, but the right-wingnuts probably won't accept him unless he follows McCain's example and kisses the feet of Jerry Falwell.
Anyone have any other ideas about who our next president will be?
