Minority Report

Today's LA Times features a very sensible editorial by writer John Ridley on Michael Richards, Jesse Jackson and the "N-word." Check it out.

One note. Ridley asks parenthetically "has anyone discussed the irony of Trent Lott becoming the Senate minority whip?" Quite a few, Mr. Ridley.

The first person I saw make the joke (about how Lott will be whipping minorities, or some variation thereof) was Bill Maher on HBO, followed the next day by Amy Poehler on Saturday Night Live.

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Michael Richards (who's been known to appropriate material) gave it a shot before his act was interrupted.

That joke was so obvious the only question was who would get to it first.
