LOTT HAS APOLOGIZED, though I'm not sure this will end the matter. On the other hand, Jesse Jackson (whose record in this area isn't very clean: remember "Hymietown" and his mock-surprise at a black journalists' meeting that so many black people could read and write?) is still on the attack, and he's joined by professional race-baiter Al Sharpton. That's pretty sure to drain the anti-Lott forces of moral authority in short order.

Then again, Tom Daschle is defending Lott, which, well, doesn't help anybody much as far as I can tell.
