Senator Frist is a Contender - AnalogKid

I want you all to read that in the tortured melange that is Brando in On The Waterfront.

(Life experience 2786: in a conversation, use the word "melange" like a Northeastern Senator suffering rectal-cranial inversion - Check!)

At any rate, The Boys of Powerline fisked Frist and found him formidable and fabulous fantastic feisty fiery damned good.

But I was impressed by the close-up contact I had today. Frist is deadly serious about the war on terror, the pre-eminent issue of our era. He tells a chilling story of receiving a call from President Bush a week before the recent British airline bomb plot was disrupted. The message at that time, communicated to less than a handful of top federal officials, was that a terrorist plan was known to be in progress which could kill several thousand Americans, but there was no assurance that it could be stopped. It was stopped, thankfully, and news accounts suggest that the very terrorist surveillance programs now under attack by the Democrats were instrumental in saving thousands of American lives. Senator Frist is fully committed to using all of the appropriate tools at our command to win the war against Islamic terror, and September will see a series of legislative initiatives designed to strengthen our defenses against the terrorists.

The next time you consider voting Democrat, consider how they would react on hearing that news. The waltz would be Leak-to-the-press-Leak-to-the-press-Panic. And then blame Bush.

The Majority Leader also made a point on taxes that surprised nearly all of his listeners. If you take a family of four, with an average American income of $64,000 per year, and assume that the Democrats regain control of either the House or the Senate and block the extension of the Bush tax cuts, as they are committed to doing, what would be the impact on that average family? A federal tax increase of 58%. That's what the Democratic Party stands for.

Damn. I'd just be happy to hear Frist throw that in the DNC's face. It's not that it's truth to power or anything silly like that (of course it's true) - it's that Democrats only debate nowadays using lies, obfuscation, and denial. Deny this.

Sadly, there is also this ...

He needs to beef up his Presidential persona, by, for example, learning what to do with his legs when he is addressing a group.

. . .

I'm not sure how to take this.

I could say the same thing about Jessica Simpson (Yes! Do that again!). Or with another meaning altogether, about Hillary (Yes, please put them back under the table ...). But with Frist, it's just a hell of a thing to say. If a guy's body language is so bad that you make note of it, presidential timbre he may not have.
