Looks like Bill Frist will have to make new plans for August 14: after the senator’s surprising announcement that he would support increased federal funding for stem cell research, organizers of a Christian judicial rally decided not to invite him to their mid-August event. Frist spoke to the first session of the rally, “Justice Sunday,” held in April. But organizer Tony Perkins said Frist’s stem cell position “reflects an unwise and unnecessary choice both for public policy and for respecting the dignity of human life,” and withheld a second invite. So who did they find instead? None other than Tom DeLay. He’s “a natural fit” for the rally, said Perkins. Maybe he hasn’t heard about DeLay’s little ethics problem.
