Lott: Bush barely mentioned Iraq in meeting with Senate RepublicansIn yet another horrifyingly shameful day to be an American, the Senate sent the despicable detainee interrogation bill to the President’s desk last night. See its horrifying provisions here.
This guy is typical of Republicans, pay attention to the bolded stuff.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush barely mentioned the war in Iraq when he met with Republican senators behind closed doors in the Capitol Thursday morning and was not asked about the course of the war, Sen. Trent Lott, R-Mississippi, said.
"No, none of that," Lott told reporters after the session when asked if the Iraq war was discussed. "You're the only ones who obsess on that. We don't and the real people out in the real world don't for the most part."
Lott went on to say he has difficulty understanding the motivations behind the violence in Iraq.
"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."
God: "Trent Lott really IS a giant asshole, that's why I sent Katrina to level his house"
