Trent Lott for his smarmy statement about passing an act of congress to make that Cuban Gonzales boy a citizen to take the politics out of the matter.

Does an ex-senator qualify as a politician?

If they do, could we also count someone who ran for the Senate (as a wannabe-politico, with unique fund-rai$ing $kill$)????
