Mississippi, the great red state that it is, is being rewarded by losing 1,500 jobs as a result of military base closures. However, they are gaining 107 because one base in the state is being expanded. Therefore, Mississippi is only losing 1,400 jobs. Normally that's not good, Trent Lott, through his spokesman, says that he "felt pretty good we that dodged a bullet."
I guess that Lott's military experience has shown him that dodging a bullet means taking a pretty severe hit.
