Bush lets Lott have it. And we didn't even have to wait another day. CNN quotes the president as saying, "Recent comments by Senator Lott do not reflect the spirit of our country. He has apologized and rightly so. Every day that our nation was segregated was a day our nation was unfaithful to our founding ideals." Good for Bush. Unfortunately, he did not call on Lott to resign. We can only hope that Lott has already told Bush that he's going, thus sparing himself further public humiliation.
