I dare say, Lotts decision to go on the BET show this evening is precisely whats wrong with the man. He thinks that blacks are just another constituency that can be appeased-- Wait a second, hes thinking like a . . . Democrat. So THATs whats wrong with him!
Why cant he be satisfied that he was GOP leader for a stretch, sit himself down for the sake of the NEW Republican majority (and leader)--and thereby help Bush get done what most GOPers want him to get done--but fulfill his responsibilities to his state by staying in office (and denying the Demos another seat in the Senate), and eat his humble pie in peace, far from the madding crowd? My goodness, I thought politicians were supposed to have the stomach for these sort of things.
