Seeing rumors in The Corner that Sen. Trent Lott is being elected to a leadership position again. Heard on the radio that this is confirmed.

Seeing rumors in The Corner that Sen. Trent Lott is being elected to a leadership position again. Heard on the radio that this is confirmed.

The Republicans have been demonstrating a much higher standard of policing their own ranks than the Democrats. Lott was booted from the Majority position for an questionable remark that could be imagined to be racist, by those closet racists on the other side. Actually, many wanted him removed for failing to convict Clinton and for his other bumbling and the remark seemed to be a good PR way to finally get rid of him.

Others in the Republican ranks were booted for things that are nothing compared to what the Democrats accept as perfectly fine, like that guy from New Orleans, an impeached judge, Murtha, etc.

Maybe I am too harsh on Lott, because his competition was Lamar Alexander, from my State, and I don't want to see him in a leadership position either. I really don't want to see him in the Senate, but it looks like he will be there for a while.

It looks like we might be at the start of a 2-year "dumb-off".

I don't have a good feeling about this at all.
