Punk of the Week Award

Time once again for the Punk of the Week Award, where we single out the biggest Punk and expose their Punkery for all the non-Punk world to see.

And the coveted Golden Buttock goes to ...

Senator and Doctor (or is that Doctor and Senator? Which pays more?) William Frist, Republican of Tennessee. Take a bow, Billy Boy.

But what Punkness has Billy done that warrants him the prized Palm de Butt?

Let's start with his stand on AIDS. He made several public statements and was left wallowing and gasping like a landed carp when a reporter finally cornered him and asked him to verify that - to him, at least - you can catch HIV from tears and sweat (it was found in a sexual education curriculum that he extolled).

Let's move on to Terri Schiavo. Hoo boy. He stood on the floor of the Senate, with the C-SPAN cameras rolling, and averred that based on his careful viewing of less than a minute of an hour-long video that Ms. Schiavo was NOT in a "persistent vegetative state." Then, after the poor woman finally died and he got called on it, he tried to weasel out, saying that he'd never made a diagnosis about her condition. Guess he forgot to have C-SPAN's tapes confiscated before the networks got hold of them, huh?

And finally we have this week's comedic moment from Fristie. After drinking the Kool-Aid and accepting his leash humbly from El Presidente, he suddenly Saw the Light and now endorses stem cell research. It was such an obviously shabby change of mind that I can only guess he did it to distract from Karl Rove.

Billy, making a mad dash to the center is something you expect a Democrat to do. All you've done is piss off the shit-for-brains assholes who own you body and soul. Now who do you think will support you for Prez in 08?

Yes, Billy was a true Punk this week.
