You Can Take The Byrd Out Of The Klan…

But you can never really take the Klan out of the Byrd, now can you? Can you imagine the hue and cry if a feller with an (R) next to his name said this:

Mr. Byrd embraced the same judicial philosophy as the president in his memoir, “Child of the Appalachian Coalfields,” released earlier this summer. In the book, he repeatedly blamed “liberal judges” and “activist judges” for many of the nation’s problems.
“One’s life is probably in no greater danger in the jungles of deepest Africa than in the jungles of America’s large cities,” he writes. “In my judgment, much of the problem has been brought about by the mollycoddling of criminals by some of the liberal judges who have been placed on the nation’s courts in recent years.”

    “Pop Quiz: Who’s up for re-election next year?”
    It remains an open question, thankfully. Congresswoman Shelly Moore Capito shows a decent chance of beating Byrd in the polls I’ve seen, and that’s before the campaign’s really even started. Senator Klansman MIGHT just decide he finally wants to “spend more time with family.”

    Why do I suddenly feel like throwing up?

  3. It’d be a shame to loose another old boy from the hood.

    Maybe we can get all those buildings named after Byrd re-named to honor someone more important, I dunno, maybe cartoon characters?
