Relationship with KKK O.k. if for politics says Clinton

Well, now I’ve heard it all.  Only a “we love diversity…Republicans are racist…now please vote for us” Dem could get away with this.  Well, maybe not a Dem…maybe just Slick Willy.  Clinton, speaking at some memorial for Senator Robert Byrd, says being associated with the KKK is a-o.k., as long as the reason is getting elected.

Incredible. Absolutely incredible. And that “fleeting association?”  He started a chapter with 150 of his closest friends! He even wrote in a 1945 letter,

that he would never fight in the armed forces ‘with a Negro by my side.’  Byrd added that, ‘Rather I should die a thousand times, and see old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels.’

Only a Democrat could downplay overt racism and receive applause.

Oh, and the “making it up” he did during the rest of his life?  Steering billions in federal money to pet-projects in West Virgina, like a giant statue of himself.  Who knows, Byrd’s death alone might balance the federal budget.

    It is actually just really really sad. I haven’t got an opinion on Byrd (tho he may be just about as perfect an argument for term limits as we will ever see) but the somesaulting, double revolution, triple toe loops Willy contorted himself into dumbfounds and amazes.
