Oh Come On
Word this morning is that Senator Trent Lott, ousted from the GOP leadership in 2002 (a move which I pushed for then, even way back in my pre-blogging days) has defeated Senator Lamar Alexander to become the Republican Whip in the 110th Congress. The vote, which occurred behind closed doors this morning, was 25-24, according to the AP.
What I wrote in 2002 still holds true today - Trent Lott is not the face I want leading my party in the United States Senate. This is an unfortunate step, and an unwise move.
