Br'er Fox, Br'er Rabbit and BreauxLott

Looks like ol' Trent may be in trouble.

BreauxLott.com registered 6 weeks before Lott gave notice.

Last month, after Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) announced that he was retiring before the end of the year, it was widely speculated that Lott may be considering a lobbying partnership with former senator John Breaux. As ThinkProgress noted at the time, any pre-negotiating between Lott and Breaux would violate Senate ethics rules. The Hill reports today Lott’s son, Chet, “secured the rights to the domain name” breauxlott.com “six weeks before his father announced his retirement,” raising further questions about whether Lott broke Senate rules.

"Br'er Fox, do whatever you want, but please don't throw me in the brier patch."

Trent Lott doesn't rise to the intellectual level of Br'er Rabbit, but he shares his "his amoral nature and lack of any positive restraint."*

His ethics suck. Not that that's anything new, but the bastard is skipping out of his term obligation for "18 gold coins", constiuents be damned. They may not be aware how much better off they are for Lott pullin a "Delay".

God bless technology and the Republicans who don't fully understand it.

Rove probably told Lott to do it to distract from the escort boy story that was going to be floated around. Yeah, I think they are all that evil.

DCap: Ain't it the truth? I am still trying to figure out what to call the phase that comes after outrage overload. Don't have a term yet, but I'm there.

PiNY: I'm trying too, but I can't think of anything other than insanity--but I don't think I'm insane yet.
