Say hello to the new minority whip: Trent Lott (R-Helmet Hair).
The least of my concerns about this guy are the ill-advised comments he made at Strom Thurmond's 100th birthday party. I don't like Trent Lott because he is another one of these wishy-washy, non-confrontational pushovers who, when he was the Senate Majority Leader, seemed to do anything he could to make the Democrats think he was "cool." This usually involved letting the Democrats have anything they wanted.
So, now we have Mel Martinez as RNC Chair, and now Trent Lott as Minority Whip. I bet the Republicans would love to have Neville Chamberlain as their Minority Leader, but he's dead.
Good Day to You, Sir
