Trent Lott works through anger issues in new autobiography
class=img_thumbleft> The Drudge Report has the scoop from subscription-only Roll Call about Mississippi Republican Sen. Trent Lott 's new autobiography, Herding Cats (soon to be a major motion picture starring Meg Ryan and John Cusack). It seems Strom Thurmond's biggest fan is a bit miffed at Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and former Sen. Don Nickles for "helping mastermind" his fall from power in 2002. Lott also smacks around former FEMA Director Joe Allbaugh for being one of the unnamed 'Bush aides' that told the press Lott should step down. Forget the Washingtonienne's new book , sounds like Trent's the one dishing out the good stuff in DC.
