A Boy Named Trent Takes His Revenge
Lott's been pissed off for a while: first Bill "God's Diagnostician" Frist challenged him for his leadership position after the Strom 100th birthday kerfuffle, then the big, bad hurricane blew his house down. You know he's been in the Senate cloakroom, sharpening the dagger and waiting ... waiting ...
And yesterday he got his chance. Frist and House Speaker Dennis Hastert instantly pulled the trigger on a House/Senate investigation into who leaked the existence of CIA torture chambers in Eastern Europe to the WaPo. Lott told CNN later that day that the leaker was probably a Senator. Raw Story concluded that the "revelation appears to torpedo the political gambit of [Frist] and [Hastert.]"
One can only imagine what Frist is planning for Lott. Feel the love. Enjoy the carnage.
