Unmitigated Disaster


Lott’s BET performance was an utter confirmation of the David Frum thesis–that he would to try to survive by selling out conservatives. He supports affirmative action, he’s going to re-think his support for Judge Pickering, indeed he’s go to re-think everything and try to get his colleagues to do the same (Lott will apparently now be handing out lessons in racial reconciliation). Get ready for Rep. John Lewis to become the co-majority leader. Lott’s defenders say his resignation would be a victory for racial mau-mauing. Wrong. This was a victory for mau-mauing and every day for a long time that Lott continues to be majority leader will be just such a rolling surrender to the NAACP and other grievance groups.
