Time for Less of Lott in Congress?

Sen. Trent Lott, R-MS, says he's "damn tired" of hearing from critics like Porkbusters. Some might interpret the former Senate Majority Leader's weariness to a steadily worsening case of the "Out of Touch Politician" virus that is widespread in the nation's capitol.

What's your view on this emerging question of the day? See the poll in the adjacent column and cast your vote today. There are three options:

* Yes, he's lost touch with taxpayers.
* No, he knows how to deliver the pork for the folks back home
* Maybe he just hasn't thought this Porkbusters thing through yet.

Me? I'm just your humble survey thinker-upper and blogging ink-stained wretch of the newsroom!

UPDATE: Lott Poll is Up

I don't know why but the poll didn't appear for several hours while I was up in Baltimore for the launch of the new Baltimore Examiner, but it is fixed now, so be sure and vote. This is an opportunity to send a message, people!
