Bill Frist: The Director's Cut

Amid all the hullaballoo about hot GOP man-on-boy virtual action, I noticed this tidbit in the news:

Frist: Taliban Should Be in Afghan Government

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Monday that the Afghan war against Taliban guerrillas can never be won militarily and urged support for efforts to bring "people who call themselves Taliban" and their allies into the government.

The Tennessee Republican said he learned from briefings that Taliban fighters were too numerous and had too much popular support to be defeated on the battlefield.
So a major Republican politician and potential 2008 presidential candidate calls for smoking a peace pipe with the people who harbored the terrorists that attacked the United States.

The irony drips thicker than in an Alanis Morissette song. The decision to attack the Taliban was, for nearly everyone in America, a very black-and-white issue, so clear cut, it was almost cinematic in its starkness. Which got me thinking about what some famous movies would be like if they starred Bill Frist...

Star Wars

Darth Vader confronts Princess Frist.

I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you!

They’re in R2D2! (points to droid)

Minutes later, the ship is destroyed.



I will offer you lands in Scotland and Wales for your fealty. What say you?

Sir William Frist looks over the enormous English army.

Deal. Say, do you have something by a loch?


Dr. William Frist puts his arm around the terrified Laurie.

Laurie, I’m not offering you as a sacrifice, I’m just saying that maybe he’ll stop killing everyone if you just go out on a date with him. Trust me, I've looked into his eyeholes, and he is no killer.

Saving Private Ryan

The front of the landing craft splashes down. Gunfire erupts as the men charge out. All the occupants of the boat fall, except for Private Frist.

PRIVATE FRIST (looking up at German gun placements, makes Curly Howard noise)

He turns and runs into the sea.


Colonel William Frist, on horseback in front of the 54th Massachusetts regiment, looks through the telescope at the formidable fortifications of Fort Wagner.

Men, it is my professional observation that our only option is to return you to slavery. After all, you get three hots and cot, how bad could it be? Major Lott, prepare to surrender.

The Matrix

Morpheus sits in a chair talking with Frist.

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—

Frist grabs the blue pill and swallows it.

Sleepless in Seattle

Bill Frist, holding a letter from Annie, talks with his son Jonah.

You know, Jonah, New York's such a long ways away, and it's full of criminals, and I don't even know this woman, she might be one of those transsexuals...I think I'm just going to stay here and masturbate.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time!

Right, come along, Patsy! (rides away)

High Noon

The train arrives in town. Frank Miller steps off and joins his gang of thugs. They stand ready, looking around the train station. Miller checks his watch. A close up of the hands shows noon. The watch hands spin to 5:00 p.m. Miller and his gang are still at the same spot.

Guess Marshal Frist’s not coming. So, uh...rape and loot, then a bite to eat?

The men all nod and murmur agreements and they head into town.

The Exorcist

Regan’s head spins around in a 360 degree circle before she throws up on Father Frist.

FATHER FRIST (wiping face as he packs up Bible and starts to leave)
You know, she’ll probably grow out of it. If she’s still masturbating with crucifixes in six months, call me.


Game over, man, game over!

I'll buy that for a dollar!


Senator Frist is installed in his new cyborg body, refuses to disobey his command lines.

Somehow, it just doesn't have zing like yours.

...And the scenarios kept getting better and better.

Nice to see someone besides Tim Grieve is paying attention to this.

I myself have had to work hard not to post nothing but snark about Foley.

(Man, could a sentence be cast more negatively? (But we are talking Republicans.))

Back to Frist: do you suppose he has any better information on the Taliban than he did about Terri Schiavo? Or are we just hearing more bloviating from a guy with too many videotapes?

Bill Frist in American Psycho:

"I have to return some videotapes."

Pays hookers to come home with them in his head and then refuses to have sex with them and kill them, again in his head.

i saw this in my local newspaper(it made frontpage news) and only just recovered(13 hours later)

Bill Frist?! Where does AG start?

The only thing he and Dick Cheney might be useful for is consultation on what to do with a dead hooker in a hotel room. Seriously, that's about all the probably could help with.

Well done! Those movie remakes are great.
