Speak loud and nasty

Speak loud and nasty and carry … well, something a
lot smaller than a big stick.

Trent Lott came out talking tough with his scathing memo
promising “war” against the new Democratic majority, and threatening a
series of filibusters
if Democrats didn’t give them ‘assurances’ about
judicial nominations. And then … well, he flaked. No filibusters after all.

Do you notice a pattern here? I mean, I don’t want to go off message or
anything. But hasn’t Lott just gotten his lunch eaten / head handed to him by
Tom Daschle for the like the tenth time in a row?
