The GOP Still Seems a Lott Like Trent
by Tony Peyser
In 1999, a guy seeking to head
The California Republican Party
Did something that made him think
He was one heck of a smarty.
Bill Back sent in a newsletter
An article to the GOP corps
Wondering if things would've been OK
If the South won The Civil War.
Meanwhile, Republicans now
Are backing Charles Pickering
A Mississippi federal judge
Whose views have led to bickering.
Trent's protege' once made a ruling
That made many folks feel
Pickering didn't think cross burning
Was all that big of a deal.
The simple truth is this
No matter how you fashion it:
Most Conservatives aren't real good
At being compassionate.
