    Shucks, Rachel's calling the GOP racists. Who would have expected that?

    She is clearly a brilliant analyst of the issues.

    He's a Rhodes Scholar so you he's pretty intelligent. Too bad he's a Lefty.

    Never let it be said that Little Lefty has developed the skill of individual thought. Though I still hold out some hope.

    Coming from you that's hilarious. Who knew a little peroxide could do so much damage?

    Upon passage of the Civil Rights Act, Lyndon Johnson commenting to Bill Moyers said, "I think we just delivered the South to the Republican Party for a long time to come.” It appears he was absolutely correct. In the 44 years since the Civil Rights Act, the South has voted for Republican presidential candidates 77% of time. Had it not been for the increased registration of Black voters in the South and favorite sons, Cartier and Clinton, the vote would surely have been close to 100% Republican.

    In the 44 years prior to the Civil Rights Act, the South voted for Republicans presidential candidates 11% of the time.

    To say that race is not a major reason for Republican dominance in the South is just not so. If you can find a Klan member in the South, you no doubt have found a Republican vote.

    Clearly. And the results prove how correct she is. The Republican Party is 90% white. Many members consider themselves "Confederate Republicans" and play at "war reenactments" wearing southern uniforms.

    Republicans are so riled up at the "black" man in the "White" House. And why is that?

    They insist he raised taxes, only he didn't.

    The insist he has proposed legislation to limit gun rights, even though he expanded gun rights.

    They insist he is a Marxist and a Communist, even though it was Republicans who worked to send millions of American jobs to Communist China from 2001 to 2008.

    They insist Obama wants America to lose in Afghanistan even though he has tripled the number of troops there.

    They insist Obama wants to nationalize the banks. That has proved false.

    By the way, the CBO says the health care bill will save America 150 billion over the next ten years.

    Add all the racist pictures, watermelon patch, Obama food stamps with chicken and watermelon, and on and on.

    Maddow is not only 100% correct, but the results are obvious, even to that Republican base their leaders call "hicky".

    Considering the Democrats created the KKK, that's a very interesting viewpoint you have.

    And if you want to think South and KKK, you should pause and reflect on the life and times of Senator KKK Byrd.
