no respect for leadership

Did I Mention I’m a Doctor?….Wow. Bill Frist completely bombed this evening. I know delegates get restless after the first night of excitement, but the level of noise during Frist’s speech was kinda embarrassing. Not that they really needed to listen closely. Most of his speeches go something like this: Doctor…blah, blah…medical professional…blah, blah…saved a life…blah, blah…the Senate’s only doctor…

At least Daschle did him the favor of not setting the bar terribly high for Convention performances by Senate leaders.
