I know how he feels. I have trouble distinguishing one asshole from another.

AmericaBlog, via War Room:

Trent Lott told reporters today that George Bush and GOP Senators barely mentioned Iraq when they met this morning and that they don’t obsess over the war.

When asked if the war was discussed, Lott told reporters that “You're the only ones who obsess on that. We don't and the real people out in the real world don't for the most part."

On the sectarian violence in Iraq, Lott said: “Why do they hate each other? Why do Sunnis kill Shiites? How do they tell the difference? They all look the same to me.”

This guy is beautiful. He can't help but announce his racism and he thinks his is just being chatty.

Yeah, but the poor guy lost his entire house and the prez doesn't have a porch to sit on now.

The horror, the horror...

Look at it this way. The guy could wear a swastika armband and probably still couldn't get arrested. That's how much anyone cares what vile crap comes out of his mouth.

Very sad man.

The understanding, compassion and empathy our leaders have is truly humbleing.

Saw Lott on the Daily Show, and he explained his comment by saying that where he's from, Baptists, Presbyterians and Catholics all look the same. They're all look like Americans.

And that's why he's a legislative leader, folks. Because he is incapable of imagining a place that isn't like Buttfuck, Mississippi.

I've never been to Buttfuck, Mississippi. That's a very unusual name for a town.

Grant Miller's kind of an unusual name as well.
