This is rich: The Nashville Post (paid subscription required) is reporting that the NYT’s Frank Rich, who was reviewing Broadway plays back when Bill Frist was performing heart and lung transplants, said this last night at a Vanderbilt lecture:
“I have really strong views about Bill Frist. They are not positive,”…. Frist “plays both sides against the middle,” Rich said. “His party is not going to nominate him” in 2008.
According to the Nashville Post, the Wednesday lecture, which is part of Vanderbilt University Chancellor’s lecture series, was based on Rich’s thesis that the “Democratic cultural agenda” is winning in America despite the outcome of the recent election.
Wait a minute. Did Frank Rich actually hang the adjective “Democratic” onto the phrase “cultural agenda”?
