Lotts of Pork

Unrepentant porkbarrell advocate Trent Lott has a name for his colleagues who favor limited government: "troublemakers."

From The Hill:

“Writing the language [for a spending reform bill] in such a way that gets done what we want to accomplish has been very difficult,” Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.), chairman of the Rules Committee, said yesterday. “You don’t want to make it possible for troublemakers to tie up conference reports at the end of a session indefinitely with points of order.”

Whatever one thinks of Lott on other issues, he is no friend of anyone who believes in limited government.
