Frist Nukes Himself in the Foot

Despite his hypocritical criticism of the filibuster as a tool of minority last resort to block unacceptable nominees, Frist himself voted to block a Clinton nominee indefinitely using the filibuster in 2000 - and then lied about it on TV. This sort of rank hypocrisy is why the GOP will squander their majority in record time. Today they command every branch of government, but in won't be long before 'leadership' like Frist's will leave the GOP clinging to only the courts, the traditional repository of fallen majorities, which they are now packing with partisans - a process hampered by Democratic filibusters, of course.
