fns-lott.jpg A "liberated" Trent Lott went on the offensive a few days ago telling Chris Wallace that he has "had problems with some of the conduct of Karl Rove." Remember, it was Rove who, in 2002, orchestrated Lott's ouster from the GOP leadership after his controversial remarks at Strom Thrumonds 100th birthday party.

LOTT: Look, I’ve been in sort of a liberated mode. Some people say that they hope in my new leadership position, I won’t give that up. I do believe in trying to be honest and respectful. I’ve had problems with some of the conduct of Karl Rove. But I have a good relationship with the President and most of the people around him.
