In what will probably be his final speech in the U.S. Senate where he has served for nearly half a century, South Carolina Republican Sen. Strom Thurmond today bade farewell to politics and made a parting crack about his legendary love of women.

Having the dual distinction of being the oldest person ever to serve in the Senate (he'll be 100 years old on Dec. 5) as well as the longest-serving senator, Thurmond will retire when Congress adjourns for the year, sometime in the next few weeks.

"The U.S. Senate is a special place. I love all of you -- and especially your wives," he said with a grin.

Meanwhile, across town...
Mistresse Chatte recoiled in disgust. She recognized that knock - it was Trent Lott, hoping for another evening of mimosas, Jack Jones tunes, and spankings.
