Democratic Senators Weigh In On Frist

A least Democratic Senators are stepping up to the plate in denouncing the inappropriateness of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist participating in the judge-hating "Justice Sunday" in Louisville this weekend.

Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) said "I am disappointed that in an attempt to hide what the debate is really about, Senator Frist would exploit religion like this. Participating in something designed to incite divisiveness and encourage contention is unacceptable. I would hope that Senator Frist will rise above something so beyond the pale."

Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.): said he hopes Frist "will decide not to participate in this blatant assault on the fundamental principle of separation of church and state."

Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) urged Frist "to remove himself from an extremist teleconference . . . to bash judges."

In all this hubbub, I almost forgot how interesting it will be to hear what Frist actually says to his flock on Sunday.
