Atrios predicts a "shitstorm":

(Report from CNN)
Former President Clinton said Wednesday it is "pretty hypocritical" of Republicans to criticize incoming Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott for stating publicly what he said the GOP does "on the back roads every day."

"How do they think they got a majority in the South anyway?" Clinton said outside a business luncheon he was attending. "I think what they are really upset about is that he made public their strategy."

He added: "They try to suppress black voting, they ran on the Confederate flag in Georgia and South Carolina, and from top to bottom the Republicans supported it."
Atrios' reaction to this?

The sound you hear is that of the squeals of self-righteous fury being angrily tapped into 5000 Blackberries in DC bars.
Yeah, except where the hell are they going to pull out the "righteous"? Mini-Bill, erm, pales in comparison.

Unless they get really stupid and start talking equating the sort of evil that Bill was talking about with, say, Affirmative Action. Which they may, and nobody not pushing that line of spin is gonna take it very well.
