Tennessee Senator Bill Frist has received the dubious distinction of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington's list of Most Corrupt Members of Congress. He shares that distinction with only two other Senators. Frist is looking like he's willing to go down with the President's cruel-and-inhuman-interrogation ship, as prominent Republicans are jumping overboard. So, making CREW's list does not help him. Perhaps Frist needs to take a moment to locate his moral compass, assuming he ever had one.

They are willing to compromise their own principles or to stage an argument with the White House so that they can look independent in order to distract attention from the billions of dollars per month that we are taking out of American communities and dumping into Iraq. Looks like the Dems were played, Bush still gets to torture even though it rarely produces any useful information, and Frist avoids a fight that would have brought down his reputation even lower than it already is.
