    You learn something new every day. I had never heard the word "hymie" before. I probably don't want to know why Jews would be called this. Wow.

    You can't possibly be that obtuse. I refuse to believe it.

    Ok, I'll play this game. Can you tell me, verbatim, what Trent Lott said and then tell me why I should consider it a desire for segregation rather than a compliment to a retiring congressman?

    What I see in that article is this: Everything he said leads to racism through some amalgamation of twisted logic. States rights means segregation. Complimenting a guy who was a segregationist over 50 years ago is a direct ensdorsement of segregation. The whole thing is a HUGE stretch. The guy said the country would be better off if Thurmond, who they're throwing a party for, had become president. He didn't say why. He didn't make any clarification. That's ALL he said. I take it to mean that he was telling an aged retiree that he would have made a good president, not that the country would be better off with segregation.

    By Jillies logic anyone who votes for Robert Byrd is a bigot. Heck, every registered Democrat is a bigot.
