Trent Lott: Town Crier

Oyez Oyez Oyez! Heed these words, friends, and flee! Flee for your lives lest ye be caught unawares with a pirate's terrorist's sword at yer throats (on or about August 3rd through September 11th):
Without mentioning a specific threat to the Capitol, Senate Minority Whip Trent Lott (R-Miss.) ominously advised Thursday that Congress needed to pass changes to terrorist surveillance laws before leaving for the August recess and warned that otherwise “the disaster could be on our doorstep.”

When asked if people should leave Washington, D.C., during the month of August, Lott responded, “I think it would be good to leave town in August, and it would probably be good to stay out until September the 12th.”
Trent certainly missed his calling. For all we know, he may very well have been a bell-slinging crier back in the day, warning colonists about the dangers of ass-pimples.

I like his implied imagery of Al-Qaeda twirling their collective mustache and screaming "Curses! Foiled again!" at the moment the surveillance law changes get passed. I don't like his initiating his own bomb scare for the months of August and September. Is this another bowel movement, courtesy of Chertoff's gut, or did Trent pull this one out of his ass all by himself? I just hope, for Trent's sake, that he has enough room in his summer home to house all of the DC population that need to skip town for a few weeks.
