Minority is a gender
Someone needs to call Rick Santorum and find out who minorities can have sex with and not be unnatural. I suppose we can file the latest bit of Trent Lott wisdom under “Who Knew:”
I don't usually join in the gleeful trouncing of misstatements by the politically notable, but maybe we can file this one from Trent Lott under Logical Malapropisms instead of Racial Distemper: on NPR this morning I overheard him say that the upcoming Senate filibuster on judicial nominees was a disservice to "men, women and minorities". I certainly hope no one else noticed this slip of the tongue and puts it on a web site or something.
