AND OUR APOLOGIES …
FITSNews – November 26, 2007 – First of all, we know it’s cruel and unusual to follow a scorching hot picture of Angelina Jolie with this image of Mississippi Senator Trent Lott. So we’re sorry. At least we didn’t pull his, um, “hair” back to reveal the third eye that’s located in the center of his forehead.
Anyway, Lott is announcing today that he will resign from his seat in the U.S. Senate before the year is up, marking the end of a 34-year career in politics that was marred of late by scandals and out-of-control spending.
Along with President George W. Bush, Lott was one of the big-spending GOP politicians in Washington D.C. who fundamentally failed to grasp the fact that Republicans are supposed to be the party of less government and lower taxes. In fact, Lott’s total lack of leadership on fiscal issues helped cost the Republican party its majority status in last year’s elections, paving the way for his fall from power.
Hopefully the people of Mississippi will elect a legitimate fiscal conservative to fill Lott’s seat, but God help ’em, people in Mississippi are almost as dumb as people in South Carolina. So don’t hold your breath …
