Open mouth, insert foot.

So, how about that good old boy Trent Lott, eh?

Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi went on a nationally broadcast radio talk show Wednesday to apologize again for a pro-segregationist remark that prompted angry calls for him to quit as Senate Republican leader. But no Republican senator came forward to challenge him for the leadership job, and Republican activists were apparently stymied on finding any way to end the furor.

Lott went on Sean Hannity Radio Show on WABC-AM in New York and pretty much said: “I’m a dumbass who obviously doesn’t know when to shut up.” This, kids, is why it’s always important to consider the ass you’re about to kiss in a very public way before puckering up.
