But my annoyance about his playing politics with the Terri Schiavo case is nothing compared to that of RangelMD
, who calls for the State of Tennessee either to revoke or suspend his medical license
for his rendering a medical opinion on Schiavo's state without ever having actually examined her and using the authority of being a physician to persuade Congress to pass an ill-advised law allowing the Schiavo's parents to bypass Florida State courts and go straight to Federal courts.
He has a point, though. Frist was shamelessly playing on the fact that he is a surgeon to play politics with a tragic case. Although it probably doesn't rise to the level of an offense worthy of the revocation of his medical licensure, his behavior in the Schiavo controversy (among other things) makes me hope that Frist never gets close to the Presidency.
