I wonder if any of the folks who were so joyous about Trent Lott’s departure as Senate Majority Leader, and bragged about how it showed the Republicans have begun to furl their Confederate flags, will have anything to say about his suddenly becoming the chair of the Senate Rules Committee, with lots of perks to hand out? He wasn’t entitled to the job by seniority, but Rick Santorum decided to give way.
And speaking of Confederate flags, the Vice-Chair of the California Republican Party also seems a little unclear on the “Party of Lincoln” concept. The ever-morally-clear White House says “Not our department.”
Thanks to Sisyphus Shrugged for the links.
