ORATOR FRIST

Meet the Press Tim Russert asked Tennessee Senator cum House majority leader Bill Frist, Will the Republican Party s position on race change? Frist replied, I think that we have a tremendous opportunity. A tremendous opportunity to take what has been very difficult both discussions in the last few weeks for, yes, the Republican Party, but I would even extend it much beyond that to Washington, D.C., and around the country, down to individual households. Frist concluded by saying, That opportunity is one that I m going to try to seize. I know my caucus is going to try to seize. We just had a meeting the other day; people standing up, speaking passionately about being able to take advantage of this dialogue that we ve, to be honest with you, generally, not just Republicans, have ignored over the last several years. The Fly team s staff of linguistic experts have analyzed the senator s rather cryptic comments and determined that Frist, still dizzy with power, intended to say, No comment.
