Finally I realized who Trent Lott reminds me of. Remember the knight in Mony Python's "Holy Grail" who gets both arms and then both legs cut off by a fellow combatant, but still refuses to give in. "It's only a flesh-wound!" he keeps bragging as blood gushes out from his arm and leg stumps. Only this time, we can't cut to the next scene.
Yes. I was reminded of Lott's BET appearance by some of Gollum's pleading-and-groveling scenes in The Two Towers, too.
