Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

The Last Throw of the Dice

Lott’s strategy should now be obvious from his craven performance on BET (i.e., betraying all Republican principles to save his hide). Rather than resigning the Senate and potentially throwing it into Democratic hands until a special election can be held, he has prepared the way to switch parties, thus depriving the GOP of the seat for the next four years.

Think about it: he has staked out Democratic party positions, and the Dems are clearly more forgiving of people like Robert Byrd, Klansman and race-baiter, than Republicans are. Remember, too, that Lott’s brother in law, Dick Scruggs, is among the most rapacious trial lawyers (and Democrat supporters) in the country, which means we can’t count on Lott to help out the much-needed tort reform agenda.
