Bill Frist to Taliban: Can't we all just get along?

Okay, those weren't his exact words. Here are his exact words:
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Monday that the Afghan guerrilla war can never be won militarily and called for efforts to bring the Taliban and their supporters into the Afghan government.

The Tennessee Republican said he had learned from briefings that Taliban fighters were too numerous and had too much popular support to be defeated by military means.

"You need to bring them into a more transparent type of government," Frist said during a brief visit to a U.S. and Romanian military base in the southern Taliban stronghold of Qalat. "And if that's accomplished we'll be successful."

Yes, that Taliban. The same guys who protected bin Laden and think flying kites is a sin. That Taliban.

And this guy wants to be president in 2008.

Oh, who am I trying to kid. Yo, Bushbots! Everyone knows you hate McCain, so if you want a viable candidate--a nice, cave-in-to-the-nutcase-fringe candidate whom TIIC can love, please please please PLEASE pick Frist. Please! Frist will be an awesome candidate! He's a doctor, he's photogenic, he's perfect for your party, and if you've got a brain (guffaw), you'll nominate him as the (cough cough) most electable Republican candidate.

Frist in '08! Frist in '08! All the way bay-baaaayyyyy!
