Dr. Lie-Enstien fesses up (albeit lamely, of course)

From the Tennessean:

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist acknowledged yesterday that he could have been "more precise" two years ago when he told the public in a televised interview that he wasn't sure if he still owned any HCA stock because his holdings had been placed in a blind trust.

Not exactly admitting it, but certainly handing a crow bar to any journalist or opposition party candidate who wants to ask Frist to define the difference between "I could have been more precise" and "I lied." And let's make no mistake, he is a big fat liar:

Yesterday, in an interview with Tennessee newspaper reporters, he said those disclosures didn't really tell him how much stock he owned.

"There's no way I know," Frist said. "I don't know how much, I don't know if 80% of this was sold, or 95% or 90% or 99% was sold, 10 years ago or five years ago or four years ago."

So he admits yesterday that he knew he owned HCA stock, even if it might have only been 1%, right? Sorry, you lying sack of fecal matter, but that just doesn't square with this:

On Jan. 10, 2003, Frist said on CNBC: "For our viewers it should be understood that I put this (HCA stock) into a blind trust. So far as I know, I own no HCA stock."
