Remember Bill Frist? Senate Majority Leader back when the GOP was busily destroying two or three countries (including this one)? Remember when he wrongly diagnosed Terri Schiavo from a video? Remember when he fucked over Trent Lott? Well he’s decided not to fuck over the people of Tennessee – at least not yet:
Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) announced Sunday that he will not run for governor of Tennessee in 2010.
“After significant reflection and conversation with loved ones, I have decided to remain a private citizen for the foreseeable future,” Frist said in a statement.
Do you think Frist will still be able to do some damage? Count on it:
In his announcement, Frist, who is a heart surgeon, said he would continue to engage in politics through his work on healthcare and a new program focusing on education.
“My long-standing efforts both as a doctor and policymaker to improve access to quality, affordable health care throughout our state will carry on,” he said. “I will also launch a statewide, nonpartisan, grassroots education initiative to improve K-12 education in Tennessee late this month.”
Given his track record, this should result in a lot of sick dumb kids gettin’ home-schooled. Moron.
