Croooow Blog: makes a great point:

You will recall Trent Lott and his comments about another Senator… Strom Thurmnd… I wrote about them some time ago. Croooow points out that during a recent speech in the floor of the Senate, in celebration of the Grand Wizard’s 17,000’th voote, Fellow Democrat/Racist Chris Dodd opened up HIS yap…

“Dodd said of Byrd, ‘You would have been a great senator at any moment….you would have been right at the founding of this country, right during the Civil War….I can’t think of a single moment in this nation’s 220+ year history where you would not have been a valuable asset to this country.’

Croooow pipes up and says:

You sure about that, Chris? Byrd, of course, was a Klansman at one moment in the nation’s history… Let’s see… Senator pays tribute to aged senator, and in the midst of ass-kissing, gives his blessing to said aged senator’s past racist acts. So where exactly is the mainstream press (or more than a handful of people, for that matter) on this?”

The silence form the left who were so offended by Lott’s speech, is deafening.
