Talking Points Memo: pretty damn impressive

Josh over at TalkingPointsMemo is digging up an amazing amount of info on the Trent Lott gaffe. He’s the one that found the old amicus brief in favor of Bob Jones University (which was used as a source in the WSJ). He brought up an old article about Lott not voting in favor of a day to recognize lynching victims. This is a prime example of what can happen when people have tools available like the web to publish cheaply and reach a wide audience, it’s great seat-of-your-pants journalism.
