Senator Frist doesn't know

I don't know what these pills areOn "This Week", while discussing the insanely false information in the government's abstinence education program, George Stephanopoulos asked Senator Bill Frist -- an MD and heart surgeon -- whether HIV and AIDS can be transmitted via tears and sweat, the hard right Senator replied:

"I don't know."

Don't laugh. How would he know? After all, he's a heart and lung transplant surgeon. It's not like he's -- oh crap. From Senator Frist's website:

Dr. Frist is particularly passionate about confronting the global AIDS pandemic. He frequently takes medical mission trips to Africa to perform surgery and care for those in need. As Senate Majority Leader, he continues to raise awareness about the HIV/AIDS crisis throughout the world.
