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

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.

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