Richard Nixon was a liar and a cheat. But in the end, he showed a measure of honor by resigning.
Trent Lott won
If only our government were a bad soap opera. Then we could sit back and wince at the ill-delivered lines (ie Lott) and the unchoreographed dancing of ballistic missles and ‘freedom fighters’.
Enough said. Just wanted to praise your site, comment on this blog and sign off with a visit MY site bid.
Never stop the social commentary – regardless of how angry it makes people. Think, formulate your thoughts and act with wisdom and strength – don’t become another drone of our distopia.
The most amazing thing about this whole affair, to me, was the statement made by an NAACP guy on CBS. Didn’t catch whether he was the Mississippi state chair, or just a chapter head in Pascagoula, but he claimed he had never met Lott. WTF?
I’ve never known any politician to willfully ignore an entire segement of registered voter-constituents for any reason, let alone race. The guy has a serious problem.
What Stevens and Santorum really need to hear was what was broadcast last night. CBS got reaction shots of Lott’s BET interview being broadcast to a hall full of NAACP folks in Mississippi. The peals of laughter, tinged with sadness and knowing resignation, told a long and very sad story.
I weep for the Republican party, even though, along with Will Rogers, I belong to no organized political party – I am a Democrat.
