Sen. Bill Frist announced today he wouldn't seek the presidency in 2008. A midday report by Republican sympathizer Mara Liasson on NPR said this left the Republican Party without a Southern candidate or one friendly with the Religious Right.
Kind of disrespectful to somebody we know. We suspect, presuming anybody in Gov. Mike Huckabee's camp listens to NPR, that they were on the horn soon after to say, "Hey, Mara, He is Coming."
