Trent Lott finally made a statement that I feel is a true apology for his comments last week. He said the segregation and racism are immoral. There now Trent, that wasn’t too hard to say wasn’t it?

It really is a statement that he should have made on Monday or Tuesday, but better late than never. I think the statement will do a lot to blunt criticism from his side of the aisle (and from many non-political minded Americans), but I hope that this whole incident will be a swift kick in the Democrats’ donkey hide.
