Frist and Republicans Need to Chill Out

Bill Frist’s decision to particpate in the broadcast that will portray Democrats as attacking people of faith is a bad decision

These types of tactics are the type that the Democratic party uses to attack Republicans. It is either Republicans dislike people of color, or are against immigrants. Republicans stand to lose greatly, and gain nothing by trying to portray Democrats in this way. Republicans need to take the high road and argue based on principle and fact, not on inflammatory rhetoric. I hope that this broadcast does not hurt the Republican's chances of retaining their majority in the 2006 midterm elections, but I fear it will.
