From the Nyhan mailbag: a fundraising letter for Bill Frist's leadership PAC. I guess he's running for president. I don't know who thinks this guy can overcome the strikes against him:
1) He killed stray cats
2) He looks like a guy who would kill stray cats (or a mortician)
3) He's a terribly stiff and awkward speaker who gets downright scary when he's trying to be emphatic (his convention speech last year was painful to watch)
4) He's a leader in the Senate who has to cut awkward deals and cast awkward votes
All in all, not exactly presidential material.
Interestingly, Frist talks about overcoming Democratic filibusters in the letter, but does not mention the "nuclear option." Instead, he says "The best way to overcome a Democrat filibuster is to show widespread grassroots support for the issue or nominee." Is it a sign of things to come? I guess we'll see...
