Lott of hot air

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

I have been pleased to read the on-go­ing cov­er­age the Na­tional Weekly Edi­tion has given to the “shamnesty” leg­is­la­tion and, es­pe­cially, to Trent Lott’s in­volve­ment. The re­pro­duc­tion of the Mar­shall Ram­sey po­lit­i­cal car­toons in the July 2 edi­tion de­scribed ac­cu­rately the ire of the ma­jor­ity of Mis­sis­sippi’s cit­i­zenry to­ward half of our rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the ex­alted U. S. House of Lords. That, along with your news cov­er­age, David Lim­baugh’s col­umn, and your most-ad­mirable edi­to­rial com­men­tary and car­toons, ex­posed for all to see the chi­canery and shenani­gans in which Mr. Lott par­tic­i­pated.

Un­for­tu­nately for Mis­sis­sip­pi­ans, his sixyear vacation tour has five more years to go be­fore he re­tires. Based upon his still-de­vel­op­ing skill of “open mouth widely, then in­sert foot,” Mr. Lott will con­tinue to dam­age the Repub­li­can Party, and par­tic­u­larly so here at home.

There is al­ready a groundswell to reg­is­ter as an in­de­pen­dent rather than as a Repub­li­can when our state con­ducts its newly-man­dated ju­di­cial in­struc­tion for state-wide voter rereg­is­tra­tion with ID.

My blessed mother taught me two old ax­ioms that ap­ply — “Birds of a feather flock to­gether” and “You are known by the com­pany you keep.” Mr. Lott’s good friend is Ted Kennedy. For me, ’nuff said. F. Fancher Ed­wards, Mis­sis­sippi
