In case anyone is wondering what Frist is all about, first check out his hardcore conservative record at Nathan Newman's weblog. Let's just say that on the environment, labor, civil rights, abortion and special interests, Frist is not exactly a friend of progressives.
And then there's that Dr. Evil phase:
Frist is an animal lover who said his decision to become a doctor was clinched when he helped heal a friend's dog. But Frist now found himself forced to kill animals during medical research. And his new dilemma was finding enough animals to kill. Soon, he began lying to obtain more animals. He went to the animal shelters around Boston and promised he would care for the cats as pets. Then he killed them during experiments. "It was a heinous and dishonest thing to do," Frist wrote. "I was going a little crazy."Killing, dishonesty, insanity. Sounds like he was a good Republican even back then. (Drum roll please!)
