A whole Lott of jerk

Trent Lott is a waste of skin.

In his new book (which I may force myself to actually read), he bemoans his betrayal at the hands of the Republican party, saying that backdoor politics lead to his eventual removal as Senate Majority Leader.

Gee, Trent, I thought it was because you said Mississippi was proud to have voted for the segregationist ticket in 1948 and that "if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over the years either."

Sounds like you shot yourself in the foot all on your own, TL.

Add to this the fact that you lead the battle back in the 1960s to prevent blacks from being admitted to your frat at U Of Mississippi, Sigma Nu (a battle which you did, in fact, manage to pull off)?

Oops! You're a racist.

Now you're going to try and portray the situation in a completely different light (or should I say "shade"?). That and talk about how cosy you were with President Clinton. "I seemed to offer some sort of rare zen role for Clinton"? Yeah. I'm sure Bill just loved you.


At this point there's little you can do (I hope) to stop history portraying you as an ignorant, racist son-of-a-bitch; proud representative of a state with the lowest average IQ in the country.

That'd be an 85.

Trent Lott, noted conservative politician, says, "Remember, black people suck."

Fueling my considerable angst:

Bonechurch - The Soulblight EP
(30 minutes of vast, dark spaces)

Bonechurch - Nebenstation
(another crashing, crunching EP)

Milieu - Slow Lid Close
(melancholy yet beautiful down tempo beatness)

The Acacia Strain - 3750
(highly trained eardrum removal crew)
