"There were few regrets on Capitol Hill, from either party."
Allthough, I was pretty tickled by this line from that master of mirth and good humor, ol' chucklebucket Trent Lott:
"Let's move on," he said. "In a month, who will remember the name Harriet Miers?"
One can infer that Harriet won't be sitting on the porch with the gang when Lott's gulf coast house is restored to it former splendor.*
* President Bush, addressing Katrina survivors in Alabama: "We got a lot of rebuilding to do.... the good news is and it's hard for some to see it now but out of this chaos is going to come a fantastic gulf coast... out of the rubbles [sic--that's right, "rubbles", plural, obviously much worse than your run-of-the-mill "rubble"] of Trent Lott's house -- the guy lost his entire house -- there's going to be a fantastic house. I look forward to sitting on the porch. "
