Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC), who is a U. S. Senator only by the grace of Obama's landslide and the incredibly inept re-election campaign of Liddy Dole, has now had what the blog Red State is calling her Trent Lott Moment.

On a side note, as a North Carolinian, I have found Hagan to be a not ready for prime time player. Until recently, she was a total failure at constituent communication. If I wrote her a letter, I had to wait six months or more for a response. And even then, it was a response to maybe one in ten letters.
