There is a possibility…

…that the story of Trent Lott’s third public comment that Strom Thurmond should have become president — made in October 2000 at the signing of the Spence/Warner Defense Spending Bill, and so far unreported in the major media — will hit one of the cable news networks today.

Maybe even around the same time Trent Lott is on BET, trying to explain the first two away.

If it happens, remember that you read it here first.

Update: well, it’s not going to happen exactly like this — but it does look likely to break big, and soon.
