Sen: There's soon to be a Lott less in DC

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 5-92Longtime gay rights foe Trent Lott (R-MS) has announced that at the end of this year, he will be resigning from the Senate seat that he's held for almost two decades:

Trent gives no specific reason for his exodus. Our theory: The devout Souther Baptist wants to restore gay people's faith in God, so he's decided to finally answer a prayer that they've been collectively invoking for years and years.

***UPDATE: Is there more to this resignation than meets the eye? Queerty suggests that there could be.

Your thoughts

The other reason is that he's resigning just days before restrictions against immediately becoming a lobbyist come into play.
