The poll numbers look very solid as the Democrats and Bill ‘Cat Killer’ Frist head for a showdown over judicial nominations:
Congress: Misc. Questions Polls listed chronologically.
ABC News/Washington Post Poll. April 21-24, 2005. N=1,007 adults nationwide. MoE ± 3. Fieldwork by TNS.
“The Senate has confirmed 35 federal appeals court judges nominated by Bush, while Senate Democrats have blocked 10 others. Do you think the Senate Democrats are right or wrong to block these nominations?”
Both (vol.) 3%
“Would you support or oppose changing Senate rules to make it easier for the Republicans to confirm Bush’s judicial nominees?”
For those of you that need a refresher on why I call Bill Frist a cat killer:
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., is being asked by an animal advocacy group to support legislation for better animal treatment to make up for fraudulently adopting cats from animal shelters then experimenting on and killing them while he was a medical student.
A Dec. 31 letter from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals asked Frist to make amends by pressing for reforms that would replace old-style tests where animals are subjected to painful and sometimes deadly procedures with newer, more humane approaches. They also requested that he help fund research to find non-animal alternatives.
Frist acknowledged in a 1989 book that he routinely killed cats while an ambitious medical student at Harvard Medical School in the 1970s. His office said it had no record on how many cats died.
But remember, he is a champion of Christians everywhere.
