Trent Lott's Pure White Bread

Trent Lott's Pure White Bread
Individually wrapped - just because we like it that way!

Have you noticed in today's headlines that Trent Lott's resigning? He undoubtedly wants to spend more time with his family. That, or he wants to leave before the end of the year to avoid new restrictions on lobbying that start in 2008. Whatever. FIMP remembers Trent as the guy who fondly reminisced about Strom Thurmond's run for the presidency, saying "when Strom Thurmond ran for president we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had of followed our lead we wouldn't of had all these problems over all these years, either." Apparently the fact that Thurmond's candidacy was based solely on his effort to keep segregation in place and deny voting rights and civil rights to minorities didn't bother Trent much. Heck, Trent says, Strom would have saved us from a whole lotta trouble!

So, in honor of the day's news, I thougth I'd bring this item back from the archives. A couple of years ago the Samizdat division of FIMP paid tribute to Trent with this product, his own line of individually wrapped slices of white bread. You can view the whole product description here.
