No Such Thing as a Free Lunch?

April 12, 2008 by

“Former Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) is struggling a bit to adjust to life as a lobbyist…

Life in the private sector isn’t as cushy as Lott thought it would be. No more free lunches, no more taxpayer-funded car and driver, no more overprotective press secretary guarding him from the pesky media…

Lott really had no idea how to even go about taking public transportation. He didn’t know how to use the Metro fare card machines, or how much money to put on his trip ticket, or how to add money to one of the fare cards his wife gave him. Truly: clueless…

‘I haven’t paid for lunch in 30 years,’ he joked. Breaux chimed in with an eye roll, saying, ‘Yeah, he’s learning how to pay for lunch.’”

That explains why the economic policy coming out of Washington is so incredibly stupid.

maybe he can supplement his new transportation costs by reuniting his old singing group with larry craig and john ashcroft. I’d pay to see them

“Lott really had no idea how to even go about taking public transportation.”

Normally, I’d consider that a GOOD thing.

While Lott is definitely clueless, that was not a good example to cite. But then again, who could expect anything better from the Washington Post?

Lott would pass an assessment on his Basic ADL’s, but he might not pass his IADL’s. : )
