OK, got it

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., speaking today about what may or may not occur in the secret CIA prisons in eastern Europe and elsewhere: "I am not concerned about what goes on."

Frist on an unnamed source's disclosure of those prisons' existence to The Washington Post: "My concern is with leaks of information that jeopardize your safety and security, period."

Frist on the Bush administration's 2003 leak of the name of Valerie Plame, a CIA operative who monitored the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction: The Senate won't investigate.

It makes me wonder what the Bush administration has on Bill Frist that has turned him into such a lapdog for the president. I mean, he's the freaking Senate Majority Leader, but every time he opens his mouth, he looks like a White House toadie. I know Frist wants to be president, and I know he needs the religious whackjobs to make that happen, but does he really have to be such a Bush bootlicker to get their support?

The WH can take Frist out any time they like and he knows it. He has committed crimes and he needs the powers that be to keep him from going down for them. And yes, he does have to be such a bootlicker to keep WH support. Bushco requires complete and utter loyalty. Trent Lott wasn't toadie enough for them, and they threw him under the bus when he gave them an opening to do so.
