Trent Lott: Kloset Klansman? (updated)

And Republicans wonder why African Americans don't vote for them... (More at Instapundit, OxBlog, The Daily Kos, and Tacitus; this ballot will definitely find its way into my next American politics course.)

If it's any consolation for the rest of the world (and, in retrospect, I can't see how this would console anyone), being a race-baiting imbecile isn't solely a Lottian trait, just one apparently inherent to politicos in my adoptive state.

Meanwhile, the current top story on is titled Miss. embraces history (but unrelated); now that, Alanis, is irony.
