The More Things Change...

Like I always say, you can't make this shit up.

Trent Lott (R-Mizzippi) has finally made a comeback, back from the dead, back from the good ole days when he praised Strom Thurmond's 1948 Dixiecrat rebellion whose the only campaign platform plank being Segregation Now, Segregation Tomorrow, Segregration Forever.

"I'm proud to say my state voted for him, and if the rest of the country had, we wouldn'ta had all these problems we've had neither" Trent said during a tribute to the old racist a few years back.

For that little mispeak, Trentie lost his job as Senate Majority Leader. But, to show that you just can't keep a good racist down in the Rethug Party, he's been rehabilitated and now has a new job in the new senate.

Trent will be ... [wait for it; drumroll] ... the Minority Whip!

Let's not forget that Strom was getting a little bootylicious on the side, too.
