I see while I was gone that Trent Lott said something stupid and that some people want him to step aside as Majority Leader for his remarks. Couple of quick notes:
1) I want him to step aside too, but not for these remarks. Hell, as far as I was concerned the capitulation and power sharing two years ago was reason enough to force him out.
2.) I love how Democrats have Republicans so gay and race-conscious that they immediately start bashing themselves at every perceived slight. Listen up, Republicans- Democrats don’t care about race unless it means a vote on election day, a blocked confirmation of a judge, or money. There is no reason to keep beating Trent Lott for being a moron- that is not going to change.
3.) After two years of Daschle, I thought saying stupid things publicly was almost a job requirement. The proof will be when Trent Lott starts to raise “serious questions.”
** UPDATE **
My opinion of Lott’s comments has changed dramatically now that I have seen the video.
