Lott returned to the center of power by getting the position of vote-counting GOP whip, nosing out Sen. Lamar Alexander. Sen. Rick Santorum told reporters that Lott beat Alexander by a 25-24 vote.
They can’t be serious! Trent Flippin’ Lott? This is a great lesson on how not to return to power. The dumb statements he made in honoring Strom Thurmond were just a great excuse to get rid of an ineffectual leader. He’s become a pork prince (the senior Senator from West Virginia is the pork king) and not someone we need in leadership. It’s time for some new blood in the Republican party.
