This item describes a supposedly endearing Bill Frist anecdote about a teddy bear that someone didn't think through:
Is America ready for a president who wears clogs and plays with a teddy bear? Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist thinks so. The heart surgeon and undeclared White House hopeful has recently been sending us colorful E-mails about his travels in what appears to be a bid to show a folksier side as he considers the 2008 race. His latest includes "12 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Bill Frist," as written by his kids. Among them: He prefers Dr. Scholl's clogs in the operating room and practiced stitches on his teddy bear.
How cute. Here's one more. Frist also adopted a series of cats from animal shelters as pets and then "practiced" his heart surgery techniques on them.
