This Trent Lott situation reminds me of the recent disemboweling of Arthur Andersen by the U.S. government, costing Andersen's 80,000 innocent employees their jobs. I don't actually give a damn about Lott or Andersen, but I do know that both have pulled some egregious boners in the past, for which they really should have been hung out to dry. However, there were no consequences then.
But this year these miscreant pillars of big-time America got busted for adult equivalents of smoking in the high school boys room – for which they were summarily pummeled into the slaughterhouse! Over bupkiss!
