also on the lott watch
Kos has several quality posts, Dodd doesn't see a problem with the Prez waiting a week to sound off (though he gets m4d props on nine years of sobriety), and Atrios is simply all over it.
Update: Dodd believes he has found (via Tough Times) strike three against Lott: While still a student at Ole Miss, Lott led a successful effort to keep his fraternity from integrating. He comments: "...the Sigma Nu action speaks volumes, and it leaves an unmistakeable stink over all the other less clear-cut incidents." And we both agree (yikes!) that the amicus brief Lott filed on behalf of Bob Jones University shouldn't be considered evidence of racism; the ACLU litigates on behalf of unsavory groups all the time, and it wouldn't be fair to interpret that as advocacy of Nazis or the KKK, either.
