Trent Lott, sex machine
Nobody disputes that Lott could be a great minority whip. He was elected precisely because he has the skills a minority whip needs: an intimate [!] knowledge of the institution, and the ability to shake down colleagues for votes. Lott is detail oriented, collegial with an Old World gentility â€” as well as a certain sexual confidence befitting a former cheerleader at Ole Miss.
But not for long. Because I don't think male cheerleaders have a very good track record on the whole governance thing, confident though they do tend to be.
In fact, I'm right there with Jonah as he asks the rhetorical question:
Who says the Republicans are the Stupid Party?
Well, I do. Me and about 60% of the population.
