You’ll no doubt remember that in this earlier post Talking Points coined the derisive title “Parity Leader” to describe (okay, make fun of) Trent Lott’s new status as pseudo-Majority Leader of the now evenly divided Senate.
Well now Talking Points’ catchy phrase is catching on!
An OpEd column in today’s New York Post picks it up and runs with it. “Maybe Democrats should call him Parity Leader Lott?” the column snidely, and only half-rhetorically, asks.
Okay, okay! Fine, fine! â¦ I admit it: I wrote the column in the Post. But I don’t see where that changes anything. It’s still catching on. By the end of next week you’ll be hearing it from snide Dems on Crossfire and Hardball. Trust me. It’s gonna happen.
Why else would it be called the Talking Points Memo?
