Got any ripe tomatoes?

Bettendorf lawyer Brian Kennedy in as Frist's Iowa PAC.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., has hired a Bettendorf lawyer to chair his political action committee’s Iowa efforts.

Brian Kennedy, who lost a bid for the Republican nomination in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District last month, will head the Volunteer PAC’s Iowa arm. The PAC announced the appointment on Thursday.

Kennedy also said Thursday that Frist will be in Davenport on July 29, when he plans to run the Quad-City Times Bix 7 then campaign for Iowa Statehouse candidate Roby Smith and 1st District congressional candidate Mike Whalen.
I'm taking bets on whether Frist will run the entire course. Any takers?

How much further than the top of Brady will Frist run? Or will he pull a Rosie Ruiz and run the first mile or so, then hop in a car and get out to run across the finish line? Or will he complete the entire race, even if it's in the 90's with stiffling humidity?

I was about to chime in that he'll probably walk up Brady with everyone else and bail, but then I saw he's actually run in seven marathons. I'm betting he'll do the whole thing.

The best marathon time I can find for him is 4:54. Some of the other times on there are interesting - Bush has an hour on Frist, John Edwards an hour and a half. Anyway, assuming Frist runs a 2-3 minutes faster for a 7 mile race I bet he finishes it in a little over an hour. They should get John Edwards back here to run against him. ;)

Herr Cheney's in town. Now how to convince him that he should run the Bix too??

Just make sure there are no guns around.

I'm not sure we'd have to worry about gunplay on his part. I can't see Dick's ticker making it past the railroad overpass on Brady.

Maybe Dick could fire the starting gun. But then again, I don't think anyone would stand within a hundred yards of him if he did.

Remember at the 2000 Republican convention when Cheney looked at the gallery at his military buddies and said'hang on, help is on the way'.
He was, like all criminals, giving us a clue.
We have probably had more money flowing towards armament manufactures than we have since Vietnam.

Dubya has given glimpses of honesty from time to time for those who were paying attention.

Like when he was speaking at a press conference at the Texas State House, May 21, 1999 about a website that had registered GWBush.com and was critical of him.

He said, ""There ought to be limits to freedom"

Or when he famously said, in what Al Franken labels "kidding on the square", meaning that you appear to be joking, but there's more truth there than joke,

"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier...just as long as I'm the dictator..."

in Washington, DC, Dec 18, 2000, during his first trip to Washington as President-elect.

Or when addressing a black tie crowd of multi-millionaire backers, saying, "Some people call you the elite. I call you my base." to rousing laughter.

Isn't Frist the guy who took all the Abramoff money?? IF so, why is he getting a pass in the media??

Just because he's a rich southern doctor doesn't mean he is held to a different standard or anything. If he runs for Prez he will be soundly defeated.
