Trent Lott

I've stayed out of the Trent Lott thing because it seems to me that he was just another Southern Republican saying the sorts of things a Southern Republican[Wiki] would be expected to say. Of course now the hollow attempts at apologies are grating on me. I tip my hat to Mike Rothstein over at FactoVision who wrote:

I'm sure this is reading too much into it, but is Trent Lott blaming liberal Jews for creating a furor over his comments to bring him down? (sixth paragraph)

And Harley Sorenson says that what Lott's really sorry about is that he got caught.

I suppose he could be talking about liberal Jews, but he could be talking about Texan Hindus or West-Coast atheists.

Lott's assertion he was "set up" because he's from MS, conservative, and Christian reminds me of another "conspiracy" that surfaced when another politician did something really stupid.

The truth is, of course, that these guys got caught being themselves.
