Obligatory Political Post - I talked last night to a friend who grew up in the south, and her response to the Trent Lott thing was, in essence, a sharp exhalation of disgust that sounded a bit like "Phhhhhhsssh!" When pressed, she expanded it somewhat to say that she thinks he's an asshole, and a racist, but nevertheless the elected representative of the people of Mississippi. Of course, it doesn't reflect well on Mississippi or the Republican Party to have Lott representing them, but that's up to them, not us.
