To elect Trent Lott as your second in command in the Senate is insane. Republicans chose somebody not known for his choice of words. Also Trent Lott is a leading earmarker, and the Republicans were thrown out largely because of that. Lott has egg on his face and is a representative of the old guard who merely desire to stay in power. I don’t know if the Democrats are doing any better, but at least they didn’t choose a Senator liked by perhaps 25 people outside of his state.
I really think that the Republicans learned nothing.
