Michael Kelly Again

At least the guy was occasionally consistent, even if I mostly disagree (from 1999):

As for that most slender of reeds, Trent Lott, the Senate majority leader lived up to his usual high standard of wisdom and courage. Appearing May 2 on CNN, Lott praised the Weldon delegation then in Vienna for "working on the outline of what could lead to a settlement where the bombing would stop and the Kosovars could go back in." Note the sequence of events. And, appallingly, Lott added, "As Jesse Jackson would say, give peace a chance here."

And, as for the canard that liberals didn't object to Bosnia (I objected to the way in which it was done, though not that it was done), here Robert Scheer also notes the Lott quote (approvingly).
