You are talking about folks who are resistant to change, folks who were fairly strict constitutional constructionists, folks who jumped to the Republican party (after 1964) after many of their positions were defeated. You are confusing political party with political ideology.

    And one other point. Roosevelt interning Japanese-Americans during WWII was absolutely wrong, but was not Democrat policy. It was policy of the time. If a Republican had been President, same thing would have happened.
    Did you notice the voting percentages inserted?

    It holds water.

    Did you notice Republicans have been central to EVERY race measure passed?

    It holds water.

    Or, perhaps it's not odd at all.


    Added for emphasis:
    I find it odd that you didn't jump into this thread and call Reid a "house Cracker" or a "racist honkey" or some other such slur instead of just "foolish and shameful".

    Or perhaps, not odd at all.

    You were saying something about partisanizing stuff?

    I can't see where you used a racial slur against Reid in that post.

    Re: Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment

    To me this is a "big deal" situation. Was it stupid and insensitive? Sure. Are there bigger things to worry about? Definitely.

    If it was intentionally racist it'd be a different story, but I don't get overly sensitive about inadvertent stupidity.
