The Three Horsemen of Shame Finally Retired

There are no tears in my eyes with the sudden announcement that the last of the three horseman for President Bush is leaving public service. He is following in the well respected footsteps of our first horsemen of shame, Tom Delay who never saw anything illegal and you or any court can not prove it. Then of course Trent Lott is also following in the footsteps of shame of former Speaker of the House Denny Hastert, the second horsemen of shame who pretended that a congressional representative (Mark Foley) affection for boy pages was nothing to really worry about. Trent Lott was nothing more than a yes man for anything that would benefit the rich in this nation at the expense of the masses. That makes him the end of the Three Horsemen of Shame. Over at the New York Times they have this little diamond on Trent Lott’s retirement from the Senate…

Lott to Resign His Senate Seat Before Year’s End

Published: November 26, 2007

PASCAGOULA, Miss. Nov. 26 — Senator Trent Lott of Mississippi, who was forced to step down as Republican leader in 2002 after making a remark that seemed to support segregation, announced today that he will resign by the end of the year.

Speaking to a crowd of supporters at a televised news conference in Pascagoula, Miss., Mr. Lott said he and his wife, Trish, had decided that they still had enough “time left to do something else” after his 35 years in the House and Senate.

He said he had “nothing definite at this time,” but suggested he might want to teach. He said he had called President Bush and Vice President Cheney last night to notify them of his decision.

He was re-elected in 2006 to his fourth Senate term and had rebounded to become the No. 2 Republican this year after his party had lost its majority in the Senate. But in recent months, Mr. Lott, 66, has made no secret of his deepening frustration in the Senate, not only because his party is in the minority but also because an increasingly bitter partisan divide this year has left little use for his skills as a deal-maker.

Nobody can truly argue that the three horsemen ramrod the agenda for the Republican party and this president without care as to whom they hurt in the process. Even if the majority of the people were opposed to the agenda it did not matter because they were running the show and they were going full speed ahead with a White House that packed up the Veto Pen off to the Smithsonian.

With each one of these so called distinguished leaders of their political party is a scum bag trail of shame. What was once a gentleman with probably the full intention to serve the people evolved into scams and deviation, duck and weave, hide and cover tactics till the game was up. Absolute power corrupts because you think you are the law. That is not the case in this new Kingdom that President Bush and his Three Horsemen thought they built.

It kind of disgusts me that all of the politicians on both sides of the aisle will be slapping him on the back for a job well done over the years. No mention will be made about all the little people he stepped on to get what he wanted. No mention will be made about his special interest friends that benefited year after year with Trent Lott in their pocket because he never failed to cash a campaign donation check.

I will not miss Trent Lott and neither will you. He’s retiring just in time so that he can follow in the footsteps of Delay and Hastert and not be effected by the current rules for becoming a lobbyist in Washington. Now that is where the money is, just ask Jack Abramoff!

Don’t let the door hit you in the back side Trent.

I'm surprised he's lasted this long. He made those comments about Strom Thurmond 5 years ago; you would've thought that he'd have been forced out some time ago.
