    But what do you have to say about it?
    A fringe wing of today's republican party is borderline racist (i'm talking about Rush Limbaugh and his fans). In the end? I told you I really, really don't care about parties. Hell, Fred Phelps is a Democrat and is loathed by pretty much EVERYONE. The racism or non-racism on the part of t Dems and Repubs even half a century means little or nothing to me. I don't make excuses for anyone, dem or rep, who was clearly racist. I do commend the GOP of the latter-1800s to mid-1900s for their crusade against slavery and for civil rights.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    So far so good. But the wife's away and the tipping point isn't far off. I'm thinking I need to log off soon or settle in for a bumpy night.

    It's interesting to me that you keep mentioning individuals without taking on all of the facts I've posted about the realignment of the party. Do you have anything that contradicts the fact that the parties realigned during the civil rights movement or are you going to post more quotes again?

    To answer your question, when I said, "many Democrats", I was referring to the constituency of the party, not the politicians and I still haven't seen you dispute this fact.

    Here's a good summary:
    The party's dramatic reversal on civil rights issues culminated when Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1964.[37] Meanwhile, the Republicans, led again by Nixon, were beginning to implement their Southern strategy, which aimed to resist federal encroachment on the states, while appealing to conservative and moderate white Southerners in the rapidly growing cities and suburbs of the South.

    The degree to which the Southern Democrats had abandoned the party became evident in the 1968 presidential election when the electoral votes of every former Confederate state except Texas went to either Republican Richard Nixon or independent Wallace. Humphrey's electoral votes came mainly from the Northern states, marking a dramatic reversal from the 1948 election 20 years earlier, when the losing Republican electoral votes were concentrated in the same states.

    No quotes. I just think dems have sold blacks a load.
