(We would be very sad indeed)

With the latest imbroglio developing over a statement by Harry Reid, and how the Trent Lott/Strom Thurmond controversy has been called to mind. I thought it would be a good idea to run the clip in question from that 100th birthday dinner honoring Strom Thurmond where Trent Lott offered praise for Thurmond's 1948 Presidential bid.

Trent Lott: “When Strom Thurmond ran for President we voted for him. We’re proud of him! And if the rest of the country had followed our lead we wouldn’t had all these problems over all these years either.”

I don't really think you can put Reid's comments and Lott's comments anywhere near the same league, despite desperately idiotic attempts to the contrary.
