He's Baaack. (Well, at least he may want to be.)

What does it say about Bill Frist and Mitch McConnell that Trent Lott is looking mighty attractive right now to Republicans in the Senate?
Some thought Mr. Lott would quietly slink away, but instead he rebuilt his career as sort of a Republican Greek chorus. On any given Tuesday in the Capitol, when Republicans meet for their policy luncheons, Mr. Lott can be found afterward lingering in the corridors, surrounded by reporters eager for sharp sound bites from the former leader.
Oh, man. When I said stock up on popcorn yesterday, I didn't realize we were going to get comedy, too. This may be the best holiday season ever.
