Zero is the lonelest number
The blogsphere is becoming the Lottsphere, and I'm not going to buck the trend.
The Washington Post reports today that Trent Lott has approached Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell asking them to issue statements support him but they have refused.
Juxtapose this against the saccharine statements of support coming from Lott's fellow Senators. You can read one of them, from one of my two senators, Arlen Specter, here.
For a second, close your eyes and imagine how different this scandal would be right now if fifteen members of the United States Senate were African American. Or ten members. Or five members. Or, for that matter, even one member. Yeah, it would be much different, wouldn't it?
Trent Lott must feel right at home in the Senate, but that does not mean that the other 99 are required to be hospitable.
