Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Trent Lott Has Got To Go
Numerous internet pundits are pointing out the horrendousness of Trent Lott's stupid "It would've been better if Strom had won in '48" (paraphrase) comments at Strom Thrumond's birthday party last week. Some are calling for his resignation as Senate Majority Leader. Many of those are conservatives; some are Republicans. A few examples: Howard Owens, Virginia Postel, Arthur Silber, Glenn Reynolds, Andrew Sullivan, and Daniel Drezner.
So, where are the Dems on this one? Excepting, of course, Josh Marshall. Good question.
This just in: Jessie Jackson has called for Lott to resign. Details here. It's about time.
