If you doubt it google Strom Thurmond’s 100th birthday bash when Lott said some really stupid stuff that in fact he really meant. I guess the rethugs now have a round robin blackberry tree that puts all of them ‘on call’ for situations just like this one.

That is exactly what we’ve had for nearly 8 years, and that’s what McSame is itching to continue.

He’s not gonna fire anybody, and least of all Charlie Black, whether he’s in hot water or not. None of the Rethugs care about that stuff.
