Flip Flop Frist

From Think Progress: Frist had no problem in squishing Harriet Miers' nomination before she even got an up or down vote. Yet on Fox News Sunday he said:

"So I think it would be unconscionable — I think it would be wrong — I think it would be against the intent of the founding fathers and our Constitution to deny Sam Alito an up or down vote on the floor of the United States Senate. I have stood from day one on principle that these Supreme Court justices — nominees deserve an up or down vote, and it would be absolutely wrong to deny him that."
Yeah sure, drag out the founding fathers when it's convenient.
