Trent Lott to Retire from Congress

  • Mississippi mudslinger Trent Lott reportedly decided over turkey and stuffing to resign from Congress by the end of the year, creating a vacuum for the minority whip post. Thanks, Trent! Maybe if the sometime-segregationist embarrassed by racially insensitive remarks in support of Strom Thurmond in 2002 had chosen to resign in, say, ’81, we wouldn’t have all these problems we’re having today.
