The long castration (from the AP) …

Sen. Arlen Specter must prove to his Republican colleagues that he is the right man to head the Senate Judiciary Committee in the next Congress, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Sunday.

Frist, R-Tenn., said he expected a chairman to understand that he is responsible “to the feelings, the wishes, the beliefs, the values, the procedures that are held by the majority of that committee.”

He added that Specter, as chairman, “has a clear obligation … to take what the president nominates (and) get that nomination through committee.”

Frist would not say if he backed Specter for the job.

Frist said Specter’s comments were “disheartening to me. They were disheartening to a lot of different people,” Frist told “Fox News Sunday.”
