Trouble in Paradise?

Looks like a little trouble is on the horizon for one of the ministers of Justice Sunday. The Center for Reclaiming America, an Evangelical group, is broadcasting a weeklong attack ad campaign in Iowa against Senator Frist. Iowa is one of the most important states in the presidential primaries and Senator Frist is one of the leading contenders for the 2008 GOP nom. Formerly the darling of the evangacons for his infamous television diagnosis of Terri Schiavo and contributions to fight against "discrimination against people of faith" (cough, bullshit, cough) in our judiciary, Frist has come under fire recently for his declaration of support for stem-cell research. The commercial shows a picture of a smiling baby narrated by the message "Senator Frist: we cannot save innocent lives by destroying them. Tell Senator Frist to stand with President Bush and oppose research that destroys human embryos." To echo the words of President Bush and Count Dooku, you're either with us, or against us Dr. Frist.
