Hey, where are you guys going?

Remember the scene in Men in Black where Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith walk in to headquarters and all of the aliens are packing up and fleeing the planet?

Mississippi Sen. Trent Lott announced Monday he will leave a 35-year career in Congress in which he epitomized the Republicans’ political takeover of the South after the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. He becomes the sixth Senate Republican this year to announce retirement. Democrats effectively hold a 51-49 majority in the chamber, including two independents who align themselves with Democrats. Lott’s retirement means that Republicans will have to defend 23 seats in next year’s election, while Democrats have only 12 seats at stake. (AP)

It wasn’t a good sign in the movie, and I’m not sure it’s a good sign now. I’m waiting for someone to discover a GOP Star Ship being constructed in the New Mexico desert.
