It’s looking as if Mitch McConnell has lost his minority whip – because Trent Lott just announced he is resigning his Senate seat. 35 years in congress come to a close…good thing is the Governor of Mississippi is a Republican, because that ensures the seat will remain in Republican hands.
But it really isn’t as if poor old Mitch really needs a whip to help him get legislation passed, since apparently, his only expertise lies in bringing pork to Kentucky. And comparing himself to other Kentuckians who have records way beyond his own.
Since this story is happening right now, we’ll have to see how it develops.
