Two new ones and I haven't gotten past page A1. Both re: Trent Lott.
"One outside adviser with close ties to the administration said Mr. Lott had become a "walking piñata"... Political physics has set in — it's only a matter of time," the adviser said."

Funny. Both phrases stuck out at me too. I loved the image that "walking pinata" conjures up, with little confederate flags and mini burning crosses spilling out...
