Filling Trent Lott's Stocking

How deposed Majority Leader must have loved this. The "weakest majority leader in perhaps 50 years"!? Somewhere, Lott is smiling with glee.

And as for The White House, perhaps it's another example of "be careful what you wish for."

Long since past time for Frist to go.........

Only a political blockhead would have preferred him to Senator Don Nickles. He never should have become Majority Leader.

Before Lott exhibits too much glee, he should be thankful no poll was taken. He surely would have given Frist a run for his money.

Remember Lott's voluntarily giving Daschle equal status in senate leadership? Remember his saying that Lt. Kelly Flynn, adulterous B-52 pilot, got a raw deal because she was a woman? Remember Lott telling Congressman Henry Hyde, (paraphrasing from memory) "You're not going to dump this garbage on us." when the Clinton impeachment got to the Senate?

In fact, were Frist, Lott and Dole the only three in the poll for "worst GOP senate leaders," all may well come in first.

Lott too, DESERVED to go for that power-sharing fiasco. But Hyde made a blunder during the impeachment drama. When Lott said "you're not going to dump this on me..." Henry should have got up, looked him dead in the eye, and said "OH YES WE ARE BROTHER......!!!!!1" Then continued: "And if you don't do what's right, we're going to leak the sordid details of "Jane Does 1 through 6."

Hyde should have forced his hand.

None of us should give so much as a second thought to Lott. He was a stiff, {still is in fact} and not the face the GOP should want as Majority Leader.
