Then in a statement [Lott] said, "My comments were not an endorsement of his positions of over 50 years ago, but of the man and his life."

Um, except the "man" was a segregationist and "his life" was dedicated to derailing the Civil Rights movement (and, apparently, sexually harassing every woman he ever laid eyes on). So how is this an apology?

This is an apology because he says it is. And now the news people will move on to another exciting story, and we'll never hear another word about this.

Joe Conason on Salon was really pissed more media outlets weren't all over this story. Yesterday afternoon, NPR did a piece about it.

Yeah, four days after it happened. But to be fair, whenever something outrageous happens on a Friday afternoon or over the weekend, it'll take the major news media a couple days to catch up. Which is why the White House releases all its bad news on Saturdays. Nobody pays attention to the weekends!

This just in: Trent Lott IS Satan.
