Why GOP=Stupid Party

Poor, poor Trent Lott was the victim of a rabid press when he lost his majority leader job five years ago after praising segregationist Strom Thurmond -- so says Oregon Sen. Gordon Smith. Not only is Smith an idiot for bringing back this high point in the history of Republican politics. He's also a hypocrite because he said exactly the opposite at the time.

And, of course, Orrin Hatch does a ditto!

Yeah, Lott is retiring, but why can't his colleagues recall other "great" moments in his sterling career -- such as his advocacy for philandering Air Force pilot Kelli Flinn or his great support for trial lawyers (most notably one of the most notorious -- his recently indicted brother-in-law Dickie Scruggs) -- or his general pork-friendly ways representing Mississippi?

Instead, they are caught up in, uh, whitewashing Lott's praise of a guy who bolted his party becaue it was beginning to support civil rights!

Stupid, stupid, stupid!
