Carpetbagger just posted on this but it bears repeating, ad nauseum.
Frist told reporters Thursday that while he believed illegal activity should not take place at [the black site] detention centers, he believes the leak itself poses a greater threat to national security and is "not concerned about what goes on" behind the prison walls.His response is unflinching-- nail the leaker(s) and ignore the real story. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) reveals that some members of the GOP are capable of ignoring the Borg's commands, "Talk about not seeing the forest for the trees. The real story is those jails."
I truly hope that Frist runs in 2008 because I'd love to see that quote in a campaign ad in addition to his melt-down after the Dems shut down the senate, his actions in the Schiavo case, and his history of performing medical experiments at home on adopted cats. Then again, it would be lovely if he couldn't run because he's in jail for insider trading.
