A Taste of their Own Medicine

Sometimes people are forced to take a taste of their own medicine:

Doctor Frist’s flip flop on stem cell research hasn’t been received well by the far right. Tom Delay offered the opinion that “a candidate that, that-umm-believes in the destruction of life would have a very hard time appealing to the vast majority of the republicans in this party.” Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, warned that “Senator Frist cannot have it both ways. He cannot be pro-life and pro-embryonic stem cell funding. Nor can he turn around and expect widespread endorsement from the pro-life community if he should decide to run for president in 2008.”

I miss the days when Republicans at least pretended to support individual liberty and keeping the government off our backs.

Justices Breyer is also getting a taste of his own medicine. AP reports, “Libertarians upset about a Supreme Court ruling on land taking have proposed seizing a justice’s vacation home and turning it into a park, echoing efforts aimed at another justice who lives in the state. Organizers are trying to collect enough signatures to go before the town next spring to ask to use Justice Stephen G. Breyer’s 167-acre Plainfield property for a ‘Constitution Park’ with stone monuments to commemorate the U.S. and New Hampshire constitutions.”

Personally I avoid tasting all those medications I prescribe as much as possible. This week, rather than tasting medicine, I’m working on Appletini recipes in anticipation of guests next weekend. My experimentation so far suggests either equal portions of Grey Goose to Apple Pucker Schnapps, or perhaps the using the vodka in a 2:1 ratio. I’ve tried adding a splash of either Rose’s Lime Juice or Sour Mix. The Sour Mix tasted a bit better but makes the drink slightly cloudy. I’m thinking of trying regular lime juice as opposed to the more concentrated Rose’s next time.

Anyone happen to know the perfect Appletini recipe? This is even more fun that Friday Cat Blogging.
