Trent Lott says Iraq really didn’t come up when he and other Republican leaders had a secret meeting on the Hill this morning with what’s his name, Iraq War Guy, the president.
And why would it come up? It’s not like any of those guys are in danger of being blown to bits.
“You’re the only ones who obsess on that,” Lott told CNN’s Ted Barrett, presumably referring to the press. “We don’t, and the real people out in the real world don’t for the most part.”
In other words, “Fuck off, war widows!” We’ll get to the ignorant racist diatribe you know is coming, after the jump.
Proving you can take the Trent out of segregationist Mississippi but you can’t take the segregationist Mississippi out of the Trent, here’s what Lott had to say about the Iraqi civil war:
“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 Israelis 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.”
Let’s see, proudly stupid about an invasion and occupation he supports? Check.
Use of “these people” to describe anyone who isn’t a lumbering redneck fucktard in a toupee? Check.
Has no idea if he’s talking about Iran or Iraq? Check.
Brown people all look the same? BINGO!
You know why Trent Lott is a powerful American politician? Because he’s exactly what America deserves.
