Sen. Trent Lott says he'll sign a deal with an unidentified publisher this week to pen his memoirs.

The success of Hillary's book must be killing him.
Not much to add, but this is mildly intriguing:
While Lott said he would "let the chips fall where they may," the senator assured Congressional Quarterly that his memoirs would not be "a revenge book."
Marty Wiseman, head of the Stennis Institute for Government at Mississippi State University, expects Lott to write about his betrayal by people he considered friends as he struggled to keep his leadership job.
"I know he thinks people turned on him," Wiseman said.
The political science professor also said he expects Lott to disclose how his relationship with President Bush has changed....
Ronald Reagan used to say that GOP's Eleventh Commandment is "Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican." If Trent's prepared to break that commandment, I am delighted.
