Think Progress: Frist Resurrects Up-or-Down-Vote Principle

Think Progress has a piece about Frist's apparent change of heart. First he helps force Miers to drop out of the SCOTUS process, now he's back to demanding an up or down vote on Bush's nominees, as he said on Fox News: "So I think it would be unconscionable — I think it would be wrong — I think it would be against the intent of the founding fathers and our Constitution to deny Sam Alito an up or down vote on the floor of the United States Senate. I have stood from day one on principle that these Supreme Court justices — nominees deserve an up-or-down-vote, and it would be absolutely wrong to deny him that."

Can they get any more hypocritical?
