I know that this is just a silly aside intended for the consumption of Democratic party loyalists, but I just have to comment. Bush's political strength (or mandate) is certainly not the result of the 2000 election. His mandate is the result of his overwhelmingly job approval since 9/11. Why do they approve? Because he has done many things that the American people feel are right.
The Washington Post reports that al Qaeda may have received VX gas from Iraq last month. It is believed that it was smuggled out through Turkey.
VX gas is a weapon of mass destruction. It kills humans on contact.
but Trent Lott is either a racist or an idiot or a racist idiot.
This fool's got to go.
And learning today that he said the same thing back in 1980 doesn't help. Obviously these weren't off the cuff remarks that he didn't have time to consider. He had a couple of decades to consider these remarks!
Here's what Lott should have said.
Here's what the Dems will be saying in 2004 if he doesn't go.
