Never, Never, Neverland

Now that the autopsy results from Terri Schiavo are in, Herr Senator Doctor Frist states emphatically that he never said what he said about Schiavo's condition. Never. And given a second chance by Matt Lauer to possibly clarify his previous statements that Shiavo responded to stimuli, he gets his back entirely up and throws out a veil of angry words. Never. Never made a diagnosis. Never even made a statement.

Yet on March 17, 2005, he said:

"To be able to make a diagnosis of persistent vegetative state - which is not brain dead; it is not coma; it is a specific diagnosis and typically takes multiple examinations over a period of time because you are looking for responsiveness - 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."

Sounds like presidential timber to me.
