Frist's Judgement Called Into
In a news release titled 'Frist is Worse than Kerry', William Donohue of The Catholic League calls him out thusly:
Donohue goes on to say that an anonymous White House souse had informed him that Senator Frist is 'an odious fudgepacker'.
Our suspicions raised to a razor sharp level, we called Karl Rove to ask whether he might be the souse in question.
"Sure thing," he told us. "I've told everybody. It's not a real secret around Capitol Hill. And anyway, it's not a big deal to be an odious fudgepacker, at least not to the liberals, of which I now consider Frist to be one. What the hell, it's still legal according to the old Supreme Court. So what's your question?"
Since Rove had already answered our question, we used this opportunity to score a bonus query, asking him if there was any further dirt forthcoming.
"Well, this is double secret off-the-record," he told us, "but Frist's wife is undercover. She's undercover with three different members of the judiciary, plus a certain liberal senator from California, as well as the sportscaster from channel 7."
"Really?" we replied.
"Ha, ha, no," Karl laughed in that inimitable style that's all his own. "I was just kidding about that double secret off-the-record stuff."
