Schumer Makes Frist Babble Incoherently
Schumer: Isn’t it correct that on March 8, 2000, my colleague [Sen. Frist] voted to uphold the filibuster of Judge Richard Paez?
And Senator Frist’s verbatim response:
The president, the um, in response, uh, the Paez nomination - we’ll come back and discuss this further. … Actually I’d like to, and it really brings to what I believe - a point - and it really brings to, oddly, a point, what is the issue. The issue is we have leadership-led partisan filibusters that have, um, obstructed, not one nominee, but two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, in a routine way.
Looks like Frist gets a little flustered when being slapped with his own hypocrisy. I guess filibusters are only a bad thing when he's not in on them.
