and he wasn't kidding...

another jon stewart snippet. trent lott yesterday re: the next supreme court nomination...

TL: i want the president to look across the country and find the best man, woman, OR minority that he can find.

JS: now you know what people? No! give this man some credit! i remember a time when a senator from mississippi wouldn't even put a minority on equal footing with men and women.


somehow it's both surprising and not-at-all-surprising that something like this came out of lott's mouth...

Lott gives Bush a run for his money when it comes to public speaking skills.

omg, I just saw the daily show episode on my dvr. 24hr news is just such a trap for people which don't think before they speak. Sigh. Part of me can't believe he said that, but then again I'm from that neck of the woods, and it doesn't surprise me at all, especially given his past.

I've also started becoming a lot more cynical about the White House. I briefly thought they timed the Miers withdraw announcement so that it would be the day before the Libby indictments. That way the withdraw would only get one day's worth of press. But then again I have to remind myself that there has been so much bad press about the White House and Congressional Republicans that they really can't time it, there seems to be something new every day or two.

I wonder if the term, "lotty mouth" could catch on?

And here I thought you'd forgotten about me. I can't say I wasn't a little hurt that you'd been AWOL for so long, but now I know never to doubt you again Jazz.

Btw, sorry for my own comment-absenteeism. If I haven't said it before, I adore the HNT photos!

Still not as good as helmes saying 'nigger rich' on the senate floor, but one has to wonder how you can think the republican party isn't a halfstep away from being the Racist Party, especially in the south....

It's getting harder and harder to find people who admit that they voted for that party.
