Asian Tsunami

Frist uses devastation for photo-op

Senator Bill Frist has been touring -- and attaining photo-ops in front of -- the devastation in Sri Lanka. The Maryville, TN Daily Times has the story.

Just before his helicopter lifted off, Frist and aides took snapshots of each other near a pile of tsunami debris.

"Get some devastation in the back," Frist told a photographer.

And get that corpse over there in the shot -- adjust its hand so it's giving me a thumbs-up. No, no! Not the indigenous corpse! The white tourist corpse. Should I smile or look solemn?
