I will be very disappointed in Rick Santorum if this is true. Trent Lott seems like the least sincere person in the Senate, which makes him the polar opposite of Rick Santorum. It depresses me that the latter would help the former. Lott is also a huge turn-off on television. Whether or not Lott is the person to count votes, you have to hope that nobody lets him in front of a camera.

MORE: In the category of misery loving company, thoughtful Democrats don't really like their leadership choices, either. (No, the indisputable fact that I am on an Ezra Klein jag does not mean I'm going native. Indeed, I may link him again on this still young day.)
Trent F-in' Lott. Getting rid of guys like that was one of the few benefits I could see to the Republicans losing.
And now even that's gone. It's cold comfort that the Democrats also got snookered with their leadership.
How about we build a fence on the border? The border of DC, VA, and MD that is.
My Turing word is prgwtff. Sork of like Pork, WTF.
Unfortunately, Rick Santorum was a key supporter of Trent Lott in the immediate uproar over Lott's Strom Thurmond episode. Seems Lott helped him climb the ladder in the Senate. That performance had a lot to do with Rick's erosion of support back home. I know several disgruntled Pennsylvania conservatives who stopped writing checks to his campaign and who sat on their hands this year.
