Republican Quote of the Day
Concerning greater transparency by the Senators in revealing their campaign finances—
I don’t have any problem with electronic filing, but I’m not necessarily interested in making it easier for the press to do their work. —Republican Whip Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi as quoted by Elana Schor in "Open-gov’t groups seek senator’s i.d."
That's about as close to an honest statement as Trent Lott has managed to come ever since he praised segregationist Senator Strom Thurmond's run for the Presidency.
