Trent and Bill, Sittin' in a Tree ... 

In a recent interview with the Galveston, Texas, Daily News, Mississippi senator Trent Lott gave gave Tennesse senator Bill Frist low marks, to say the least.

Lott said Frist didn’t have the experience to lead a political body as fractious as the Senate, adding, “I don’t think he’ll go down in history as one of the greats." Frist, who is dogged by questions about stock transactions involving his family company, plans to step down next year as majority leader to make a run for the presidency. It’s a run that Lott doesn’t think much of.

“I don’t think he has a shot at that,” Lott said.

Lott is currently on tour promoting his memoir, Herding Cats. All we can say is meow.
