    I love how any time a discussion of racism, the Klan, Jim Crow or any of the stuff that happened 50+ years ago comes up, some conservative just has to start shrieking "Robert Byrd!," whom the vast, vast majority of us never got a chance to vote for or against, as some "I win" button that settles once and for all that liberals are the Real Racists.
    wow... you took my comment waaaaay to far.

    you should consider a vacation from politics... it's making you a lil loopy.

    Chill your bush, dude, I wasn't necessarily referring to you.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Naw...I can't let that stand on its own. You so-call limited government cooks need more convincing. So, there's this from the Cato Institute covering the early years of the GWB Administration...spending was well under control back then wasn't it?



    And how about this one for those who continue to argue over federal employees in relation to the size of big federal government.

    Fact is the only Republicans seem to limit when in power is the ability for the other side to get anything of substance done.

    Now that that's done, we can get back to talking about how irrelevant the KKK is these days. ...

    I rest my case.

    Right, and the Libbos want smaller, less intrusive government?

    That's called seeing the error of his youth and denouncing the Klan and everything they ever stood for and apologizing thousands of times for his involvement in the organization.
    Byrd also said, in 2005, "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again.
    You have it backwards ...Senator Byrd denounced the Klan in 1952 ... eleven years before the Voting Rights Act was passed. He actually lost many votes because of his stand against the KLAN.

    Not at all. The approval Senator Byrd got from the NAACP was based on his civil rights voting record between 1952 and his death in 2010.
    That is a pro-civil rights voting record that spanned six decades.
    The twist is the common ignorance of so many republicons who have no inkling of history, and are quick and quite happy to demonstrate that ignorance at the drop of a hat.
