As I have contemplated Trent Lott’s now-famous nostalgic remarks about the glories of the old segregated South, my thoughts have turned to a number of questions. Question number one is, how could one of our best-known politicians, veteran of decades of negotiating political minefields, say something in public which is so incredibly stupid and so potentially damaging to his career?
Then I remembered something. I thought I had read somewhere that Lott was a cheerleader at Ole Miss. If so, this would explain everything.
I did a little research and it’s true, Lott was a cheerleader when he was an undergraduate at the University of Mississippi. The CNN All Politics website adds helpfully that Lott was a “male cheerleader.” That’s good to know. With all the other accusations about Lott’s past, at least we know he wasn’t engaged in cross-dressing while he was leading cheers for the fightin’ Rebels.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
