Remember Trent Lott, the former Senate Majority Leader? Remember when Lott said something perhaps a bit intemperate about the Old Dixiecrat Leader (at a celebration for Strom)? Remember how some folks thought it was racist? Remember how that sleazy opportunist, Bill Frist, jumped into contention for the Majority Leader Job? Remember it took less than two days for McFlightsuit to completely cut Lott loose and leave him twisting in the wind?

Well, kiddies, guess who's the Republican Leader in the Senate again. (Hold onto that confederate money--The south will rise again). Yeah, that would be, uh, Trent Lott.

Now, I'm just thinking out loud here but it just doesn't seem likely that Lott is going to spend a lot of political capital defending President "Mission Accomplished" and Uncle Dick. Lott started out as a Democrat congressman. He could end up as a centrist policeman of a runamuck White House. Keep in mind, Lott's also a Katrina victim and a secondary victim of Shrubby's pals in the insurance industry ("It might be wind and it might be water damage but it's whatever you don't have coverage for, Senator.). I don't imagine he's bubbling over with goodwill for the establishment safety net.

Lott's first course at this fine meal of politics was preparing (and being willing) to impeach Nixon.
Wouldn't it be ironic if dessert was giving the same kind of rapid response assistance to Bush that Bush gave Lott during Katrina and During the Strom-Flub?

Stuff just happens, doesn't it?

I have always kind of liked Trent Lott - know I know why. I did not realize he used to be a Democratic congressman. I guess many Republican politicians today used to be Democrats though.

Trent Lott was never a Demoratic congressman.

Phrased inelegantly and incorrectly. He was Chief of Staff for Democrat/Segregationist/Sometime Dixiecrat Colmer.

My fingers moved too fast for my brain. Thank you for correcting me.
