ONCE again, the so-called Liberal Media (HA!) get the story wrong. On Wednesday, ABC picked up a story from Reuters announcing that former Senate Majority Leader Bill (pphhaaat-Uie!) Frist will not seek the Presidency in 2008 after all.
"In the Bible, God tells us for everything there is a season, and for me, for now, this season of being an elected official has come to a close. I do not intend to run for president in 2008," quoth the evil Dr. Frist.
The article went on to speculate about some of the reasons why First may have chosen to step from the spotlight.
Some hold him partly responsible for the "Thumpin" the Republicans took in the Midterm Elections this November.
Others, according to the article, thought it irresponsible of this doctor to make a diagnosis in the Terry Schiavo case based on an upclose and personal examination of...wait for it... a video tape. ("I'm not a medical patient, but I play one on TV.")
And, of course, the media mentions some fishy stock dealings that raised a few eyebrows.
But nowhere, NOWHERE does the so called mainstream media article mention the fact that, as a medical student, Senator Doctor Frist admitted adopting PET CATS from the local animal shelter and dissecting them in his apartment...2 FREAKING PAGES on ABC and not one mention of those poor, eviscerated little kitties.
Don't believe me? Look it up. http://www.upi.com/archive/view.php?archive=1&StoryID=20021231-071056-3546r
(By the way, did you know that John Douglas, who has worked as an FBI Profiler, is noted for his theory that serial killers exhibit what he calls "the homicidal triad" of early warning signs? These include: bed-wetting, fire setting, and cruelty to animals.
Kinda makes me think twice about letting this heart surgeon anywhere NEAR a knife...
But the damn Republicans chose to make this man their standard bearer...says a lot, huh?)
At any rate, Dr. Friendly was also quoted as saying that "In the short term, I will resume my regular medical mission trips as a doctor around the world to serve those in poverty, in famine, and in civil war".
Great. Lock Up your Cats. The former majority leader is coming to town.
Liberal Media MY BUTT!
Fluffy, Izzy and Buffy join me in condemning this gross oversight on behalf of the mainstream media.
