Lott of Chutzpah

Some people you can always count on. Like former congressmen and current lobbyist Trent Lott.
Count on Lott to confirm that he’s a true-blue partisan of gravy-train politics-as-usual, a dyed-in-the-wool establishmentarian committed to extinguishing each faint, flickering chance to downsizeLeviathan.
The man is a rock.
“We don’t need a lot of Jim DeMint disciples,” Lott with calm, sneering authority recently told the Washington Post, as his granite-hard jaw jutted with stern, rectitudinous integrity. “As  soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them.”
What kind of creature is a “Jim DeMint disciple”? What terrible deeds will these zombie-like Jim-DeMintians perpetrate if the heroic former congressmen and his redoubtable cohorts fail to co-opt them in time?
The creatures are affiliated with the Tea Party rebellion against the super-escalating scope and reach of the federal government, as manifested in the looming takeover of the medical industry, trillion-dollar annual budget deficits, etc. Senate candidate Rand Paul told the Post that the goals of Jim-DeMintian Tea Party sympathizers like himself have something to do with fighting for term limits, abalanced budget amendment, and legislation that is consistent with the Constitution.
Sounds like if they make any headway we can expect more freedom, more real wealth, less red ink, less Washington-based strangling of everybody.
Hence, Trent Lott to the rescue.
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.
Paul Jacob is President of Citizens in Charge andCitizens in Charge Foundation, which sponsors both Common Sense and Paul’s weekly Townhall Column. The opinions expressed in Common Sense are Paul Jacob’s and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Citizens in Charge or Citizens in Charge Foundation.

  2. >Thanks for the interest in this blog, DaniloM.But why couldn't you merely translate your comments to English? That is the responsibility of the person who comments, you know. If you don't do this in the future, I will ban you from this blog.You said, translated to English:"The marriage bets his freedom to the man, speaking of the woman actually bets her happiness."What in the heck does that mean. How does it relate to the comment I made that I wish we could ban all paid lobbiests – or even to Jacob's article about lobbying? Explain only in English, please. DWhite
