  Frist musters up his courage, puts his testicle in a thimble for safe keeping and steps out onto the floor to hit the Dem's with his purse.
Frist Won't Budge on Filibuster Demands - Yahoo! News: "WASHINGTON - With a showdown looming, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist refused to budge Thursday on his demand that Democrats forego filibusters against all of
President Bush's past or present nominees to federal appellate court benches or the Supreme Court.

Frist offered to retain the right to filibuster district court nominees in exchange for 100 hours of debate and guaranteed confirmation votes on the nation's highest judgeships.

The Senate's top Republican also said that under his plan, senators would no longer be able to block nominees in the Judiciary Committee.

'Judicial nominees are being denied. Justice is being denied. The solution is simple, allow senators to do their jobs and vote,' Frist said in a speech on the Senate floor.

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said he would look at Frist's offer, but wasn't all that charitable in his description. 'It's a big wet kiss to the far right,' he said."
