Big Dog Barks!
Clinton calls GOP 'hypocritical' on Lott Former president lashes out at Republicans NEW YORK (CNN) -- Former President Clinton said Wednesday it is "pretty hypocritical" of Republicans to criticize incoming Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott for stating publicly what he said the GOP does "on the back roads every day." "How do they think they got a majority in the South anyway?" Clinton said outside a business luncheon he was attending. "I think what they are really upset about is that he made public their strategy." He added: "They try to suppress black voting, they ran on the Confederate flag in Georgia and South Carolina, and from top to bottom the Republicans supported it."
I agree with everything Clinton says. But, of course, since Clinton said it, the Republicans and the establishment media will quickly turn this into a Clinton story rather then a Lott/GOP/Southern Strategy story.
