Might, more or less, explain Smith's "Come to Jesus" moment on the Iraq War.

If I was running for re-election in Oregon in 2006 as the only GOP Senator on the west coast I'm don't believe I'd want to be toting around both Trent Lott and the war, and neither would the "moderate" Mr. Smith

The infamous Lott speech has been taken out of context. Just before that quote from above, Sen Lott joked about Thurmonds virility. It was a fun event all meant in good cheer. The atmoshere resembled a friars club roast. The characterization of Lott is more unfair than the Dean "rawrrr" that got him unfairly branded.

Context.
