Just in case you need a reminder of what's wrong with the Republican Party, look no further than the news that moronic Republicans elected Trent Lott to the Senate minority whip this morning.
Trent Lott is the quintessential, old-school, big-spending Republican. He's the exact type of "conservative" voters rejected last week. If this is the Republicans' front-line defense against creeping liberalism, we're in a world of trouble already. Lott is part of the problem, not the solution.
