Minority Whipping

WaPo: Trent Lott Elected Minority Whip

WaPo's 'The Fix': Mississippi Senator Rises Again

Or, as a commenter at put it:

Trent Lott selected as Senate Minority Whip, because if there's one thing that Trent Lott likes, it's whipping minorities.

I saw this comment on Eschaton, who also dug up Lott's prior statements about his love for Strom Thurmond.

I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either.
