Fitting Endgame: From the Corner comes this gem, gleaned from this morning's Washington Post: "Lott will not go down without a fight, though. His allies were examining Nickles's voting record to try to show that it smacks of intolerance on issues important to African Americans." So ol' Trent wants to go scorched earth on this? This reminds me of the search for a House Speaker right around impeachment time. The GOP was looking for someone who hadn't banged the help so that they could freely skewer Clinton on the subject. They ended up with Denny Hastert. If prizes were given for shooting yourself in the foot at every possible occasion, the GOP would be hall of fame material.
