Damned, Either Way


A Texas reader sums up nicely how much damage Trent Lott did to his party in the last 24 hours: “Thanks to Lott’s kowtowing last night, the Dems win this round hands down, whether Lott stays or goes. If he stays, he’s committed himself to pandering to racialists, though his Strom comment will never be
forgiven. If he goes, the Dems get to say that the hateful Republican
Party denounced him for attempting to make the party more considerate of
African Americans. How much more damage will he do by the time they oust
him on January 6?”
