CNB Backhand of the Day Award

The Official CNB Backhand of the Day Award (given for the public comment that serves only to show the commentee who's boss) goes to Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS). Sen. Lott, a man who knows public relations problems firsthand, decided to be the first to let now-former Supreme Court nomineee Harriet Miers know just where the door should hit her on the way out.

“Let’s move on. In a month, who will remember the name Harriet Miers?”

Yes, public criticism of her entire career was not enough -- why not speculate that she will quickly fade into obscurity as well? For that kick in the pants on the way down, Sen. Trent Lott gets the CNB Backhand of the Day Award. Keep up the good work, Senator.
