The point is that Trent Lott probably still doesn't understand the gravity of what he said. Many here at FR don't. They say, "Oh Thurmond was for strong national defense, reducing wasteful government spending-- that's what Lott was talking about."
No, that's not what he was talking about and he knows it. Why does everyone think Lott is an ignoramus? He didn't just fall off the turnip truck. He got a juris doctorate. He knows what is in this platform. He knew what he was saying. He was only stupid to blurt it out.
You are overestimating Lott's intelligence. BTW, is this the complete platform? I seem to recall a longer version.
Thanks for the excellent post.

And, oddly enough, Thurmond would have still been a better president than Truman who would have gotten his ass kicked all the way back to Missouri if he ran again in '52.
Could it be that Lott had a few too many drinks at the party?
