I Don't Think Hank Done It This Way
The President visited the Grand Ole Opry yesterday to follow up on some of points made in Tuesday's speech (we'd like to you know that we handily beat a small child in a footrace just this afternoon as our contribution to the new Competitiveness Initiative). His impromptu remarks took a bit of an unfortunate turn, though:
"I'm proud to be traveling with your two United States Senators, the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, Bill Frist. (Applause.) He's a good man. He's a good guy to deal with, he is doing a fantastic job of herding cats. (Laughter.)" [Emphasis ours, natch]
Yes, he herds them right into the vivisection chamber.
Though this does explain the close working relationship between these two -- Bush has realized that Frist, with his cat-slaughtering acumen, may be our last, best hope against the Cat People.
