More about Trent Lott

It seems the blog claiming to have a “scoop” about Trent Lott is now claiming that Larry Flynt has confirmed the scoop. Uh, no. Dan Savage explains. Huff Post has more about this increasingly non-story.

I’m all for nailing Trent Lott as another family values hypocrite, but come on folks, we’re no better than the people we’re fighting if we’re not willing to fight with the facts.
