The Trent Lott Enemies List widens; Landrieu/Terrell close

Daniel Drezner calls on Lott to resign as Senate Majority Leader. Look for a lot of other Republicans to join him in the next few days; his office's complete lack of any non-laughable response, however, either screams that they've already seen the handwriting on the wall or they are completely oblivious. Having taught more than a few conservative ideologues in my time at Ole Miss, I fear the reality may be the latter. Let's see if the media actually runs with this one; Joshua Micah Marshall isn't optimistic.

Meanwhile, in a somewhat unrelated story, Landrieu leads Terrell by less than 15,000 votes with about 3/4 of precincts reporting.
