It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a....male escort?

So I've seen a couple of posts online about this, and while I'm not sure I believe it yet, I have to admit I'm starting to wonder. As per a post on Towle Road, rumors are surfacing that Trent Lott is resigning from the US Senate because of a scandal involving a male escort. If true, this will be the craziest thing to hit Washington since....well, Larry Craig, which wasn't all that long ago. WTF? Do members of Congress get free male escorts upon reelection?

(No wonder no one supports term limits!)

Big Head DC has more coverage of the possible news, including the name of the escort (Benjamin Nicholas...hmm...someone with a last name that could be his first name. It's always good to be skeptical of these people!). I'm curious to see where this goes. Barring the blogs, I haven't seen any members of the mainstream media (MSM) pick this up.

Meanwhile, I'm prepping for the Republican debate tomorrow on CNN. I might consider live-blogging it from my other persona over at Bring it On!. I hoping Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani get into a catfight!
