That was a stupid thing to say though, if he thought it wouldn't be taken as racist and has really just enforced the ideology hat the Tea Party movement is filled with racists. I personally do not feel the Tea Party is racist or that right wingers are racist, both sides have very racist elements in them, but this guy really did not think before he wrote that.
I want to also talk about something else, personally I feel the accusations that the tea party is racist is a bigoted and racist accusation its self. The idea being that just because its a right wing movement there must be racist element within in it because most conservatives are white and if they are white they must not like black people unless of course you are a democrat, even though the democratic party used to be the party of slavery and segregation. And those few black conservatives are insulted for not siding with the heavily black democratic party, because the thought is that if you are black than you must adhere to the group or you are just a pawn of the white man. And if you don't think that is true then just talk to my girl friend, who has been insulted for being black but not adhering to black culture and music.
I feel that race issues are problems in both parties but the Conservatives get it worse because there are more white people in that party, while racist blacks in the democratic party are given much greater freedom to say what they want, because no one wants to call them out on it, for fear of being called a racist them selves.

I'm not getting into the Iraq thing again.  But as far as Mr. Byrd is concerned, he like almost all the Southern Democratic politicians of his era was a rabid segregationist.

As far as him continuously getting re elected, well he used his position on the appropriations committee to bring home the bacon to West Virginia.  I have no count on how many federal agencies have their headquarters there, and for ages they got the largest portion of federal highway money.


As far as the tea party, they have a lot of idiots in their ranks .    The righties have their Limbaughs  Becks, and Fox News (another organization with few idiots in their ranks).   The lefties have Keith Olberman and MSNBC, and moveon.org.   

Ain't free speech a wonderful thing?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
