Trent Lott: 'They All Look the Same to Me'
Trent Lott must be annoyed that George Allen is getting all the attention for racially insensitive remarks. Lott once again puts his foot in his mouth.
"It's hard for Americans, all of us, including me, to understand what's wrong with these people," he said. "Why do they kill people of other religions because of religion? Why do they hate the Israeli's and despise their right to exist? 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 is the same Trent Lott who was against integration during his University of Mississippi days.
"Trent was one of the strongest leaders in resisting the integration of the national fraternity in any of the chapters," recalls former CNN President Tom Johnson, then a Sigma Nu member at the University of Georgia.
I don't doubt it.
This is the same Trent Lott who had many kind things to say about the white supremist group the Council of Conservative Citizens.
I'm looking forward to Lott getting another ass kicking from the blogosphere,
