A Little Bit of Lott
I had two ideas this morning about the Trent Lott situation. Ted Barlow beat me to the punch on the first one, that Trent Lott, in Glenn Reynolds's phrase, is "objectively pro-racist." But here's the other idea. Somebody with a photo editor program should alter the famous photograph of Truman holding up the Chicago Tribune headline so that it's a picture of Trent Lott holding up the altered headline, "WHAT'S-HIS-NAME DEFEATS TRUMAN." You'd probably have to share credit with The Onion (which once altered the photo to have Truman holding up the newspaper with the headline "WHAT'S-HIS-NAME DEFEATS OTHER GUY), but it would be timely. And funny.
