Tran Sient On Byrd

I really didn't know these things about Senator Byrd, and I have to admit that I would have a hard time voting for him if it ever came up because of them. TS quotes WAPO:
In the early 1940s, a politically ambitious butcher from West Virginia named Bob Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan.
TS comments:
This is more than one mistake. You don't found the organization and then claim youthful ignorance.
I believe that people can and do change, and I believe in redemption. But I'll never regard the man in quite the same way again. There is, of course, a lot more over at the post. I suggest reading it. And Esther commented that Byrd also has a bad voting record on Israel.

If you need something to cheer you up a bit after that little trip into grim history, I recommend this extremely funny joke Esther posted at Outside the Blogway regarding Jews and Catholics. Thanks Esther!

Aw, thanks for the link, Mom!!! Glad you enjoyed. I never forward or post jokes but this one just cracked me up!
 
Oh yes -- and Byrd sucks on Israel -- thanks for including my saying that too! :)
