Strike two. One out, man on Frist. Sa-wing batter!

Frist Urges an End to Nominee Filibusters
Analysis: Unexpectedly, Democrats Stand Firm

"unaccountable and arrogant and imperious and determined to redesign the culture according to their own biases and values, and they're out of control."

This sounds a lot like me when I'm describing Tom DeLay and his cohorts as they try to reshape the american political landscape into what they think it should be.

But this is actually a quote from James Dobson, chairman of Focus on the Family, talking about the Supreme Court, 78% of whom were appointed by Republican Presidents.

But the big news is that Senator Bill Frist spoke at this event, dubbed "Justice Sunday: Stopping the Filibuster Against People of Faith". Although he avoided specific references to Bible verses, he aligned himself against the majority of Americans who are not Fundamentaloids.

"Senator Frist's words today were less important than his giving the imprimatur to this conference, which clearly argues that people of one viewpoint have God on their side and all others are faithless," said Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.). "This will only make his job as Senate leader more difficult."

Strike one: Being instrumental in the push to politicize the Terry Schiavo debacle for political gain.

Strike two: Speaking out at a blatantly religious forum, possibly alienating the majority of his constituents in his attempt at political opportunism.

The count is 2-0. Batter up!
