One of These Things is Not Like the Others

Happy Trent, Unhappy Trent

I was intrigued to hear Trent Lott's astute pooh-poohing of that li'l civil war thingee in Iraq (via Think Progress):
“It’s hard for Americans, all of us, including me, to understand what’s wrong with these people,” he said. “Why do they kill people of other religions because of religion? Why do they hate the Israeli’s and despise their right to exist? Why do they hate each other? Why do Sunnis kill Shiites? How do they tell the difference? They all look the same to me.“
And, well, before we get all swept up in "I cain't tell 'em apart" fever, let us consider that perhaps Mr. Lott might have trouble telling all kinds of things apart.

Well, it's true, and may I present to you other things Trent Lott has trouble telling apart:

Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie

Novelty Salt and Pepper Shakers

The "Mud People"


Pumpkin Pie and Sweet Potato Pie

Illegal Immigrants

If only Strom Thurmond had been elected President in '48, we wouldn't have had "all these problems." You know, all the problems telling different kinds of Arabs and pies apart.

Happy Trent has the Bob grin from the male enhancement product ads.

Oooh. What am I saying? Don't want to go there.

Come on, I'll bet Godzilla had his papers.

Mr. Lott hails from a neck of the woods which hosted many US Civil War battles. Couldn't have told Union soldiers from Confederate ones without the different uniforms. If they'd all been wearing regular clothing, they'd have been indistinguishable from one another. White and young, so many of them.
Sigh. Not sure what I'm driving at here. Universality of civil conflict, I guess.
I still haven't read any where about whether Lott has gotten HIS Katrina-damaged vacation home replaced with our money...

That's me, the blonde Jew in the bikini on the left! Okay, okay, it was 1975...

Princess, this is definitely one of your glitteriest moments!

Forget all that- what about GOP Congress Rep. Mark Foley and that 16-year-old boy he was cybersexing?
Did you see how Foley spelled in that IM?
Pedophiles are bad enough, but must they also set such a bad example for children by spelling it "your" when they should spell it "you're"?
And using "to" and "too" incorrectly should at least be a class C felony.

I, too, was more offended by Foley's grammar than by his apparent predation of underaged boys.

Oy! What a stunning coincidence. I'm the brunette Jew-girl on the left. But I could have sworn it was 1979. Although I could be wrong; binge and purge to keep those tight abs messed with my memory.
