When it’s time to change

Haven’t been listening to the radio rantmeisters today, but I suspect they’re going to be singing a slightly different tune now that Bush has finally weighed in on l’affaire Lott:

President Bush on Thursday sharply rebuked incoming Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott for comments that some have called racist, saying any suggestion that segregation was acceptable is “offensive and it is wrong.”

More. Still wouldn’t bet the rent money on Lott stepping down, though I would happily be proven wrong on this one.
