Frist to support stem-cell research....

This is a huge suprise, Senator Frist has broken ranks with the Religous Right and President Bush.
"In a break with President Bush, the Senate Republican leader, Bill Frist, has decided to support a bill to expand federal financing for embryonic stem cell research, a move that could push it closer to passage and force a confrontation with the White House, which is threatening to veto the measure."

Can Bush really veto a bill which has strong (around 56%) public support? I could see him let the bill lie on his desk and pass into law without his signature.

In other news, Frist has diagnosed my lamp as having potential signs of life and is calling a special session of congress to get the judiciary to attempt to stay my unplugging of the lamp in an act of mercy. Note that the lamp has been on for 27 straight days without a break and continues to make my office warmer by the day.
