Other priorities have apparently overcome Sen. Trent Lott’s fanny-kicking reflex, as he has decided to resign from the U.S. Senate effective December 31.
"I’m like a woman scorned,” Lott says. "I’m prepared to continue to kick their [insurance companies’] fanny until the last day I’m alive on this Earth because they have mistreated too many people.”
In fairness, from the available evidence, we cannot decisively conclude that the fanny-kicking has ended. Perhaps, in his new endeavors, Lott will have an even greater forum for this activity than was provided by his position as a U.S. Senator. Who knows? An independent run for president under the auspices of a newly formed Posterior Punting Party? These and other great and perplexing questions of our time, such as Who Put the "Ram" in the Ramalama Ding Dong, remain to be answered.
