President Clinton entered the Lott fray, accusing the Republican party of being hypocritical for criticizing Lott. CNN reports that Clinton said of Republicans: "How do they think they got a majority in the South anyway?"

Which begs one question: how is it that you think you got elected in Arkansas, Mr. Clinton?
