TRENT: NOT SO MONEY: "Trent Lott must resign as Senate majority leader. It's not just that no one who has said this can lead an American political party. It's that no one who could say something like this should be an American leader." -Arch-conservative Charles Krauthammer, saying what absolutely needs to be said. And I'm very pleasantly surprised that much of the conservative punditariet realizes it. When Lott steps down (hopefully by the weekend), it will be a great day for America, because it will prove once and for all that there's not room in the leadership of either major political party for an unreconstructed racist. And make no mistake about it: that's what Trent Lott is.
