BILL FRIST told Matt Lauer today that he never said Terri Schiavo was responsive back in March. Judd at Think Progress says, Uh, yes you did, Bill...:

Majority Leader Bill Frist this morning on the Today Show:

LAUER: But when you stood on the floor and you said, She does respond, are you at all worried that you led some senators…

FRIST: I never said, She responded. I said I reviewed the court videotapes – the same ones the other doctors reviewed – and I questioned, Is her diagnosis correct?

Frist on Senate Floor, 3/17/05:

I have looked at the video footage. Based on the footage provided to me, which was part of the facts of the case,she does respond.

More from Frist, 3/17/05:

She certainly seems to respond to visual stimuli…[emphasis added by Judd at Think Progress].

Lying. It seems to be a job requirement in the Bush administration.

Now I understand why Republicans are so big on displaying the Ten Commandments in public places: They keep forgetting the ninth one.
