Breaking news:

Trent Lott has resigned his position as incoming Senate Majority Leader.

Question for debate: Was the response to his statement over-reaction? Or was it the appropriate response considering the details in Mr. Lott's history and voting record that came to light in the subsequent furor?

the comment itself did not deserve all of the media attention. he never actually mentioned segregation, and he -could- have been trying to humor a 100 year old man. BUT given lott's past history, i think that he did deserve teh backlash that he received, and i'm happy that he stepped down.
