    Well the good news is since it's an MSNBC report virtually no one will even know about it.

    The AP Failed to do it also...

    Also Failed to Mention that he was a Grand Kleagle in the KKK, instead Opting to Paint it as a Passing Youthful Error.

    Pure Crap.

    :)

    peace...

    Byrd's accomplishments followed a childhood of poverty in West Virginia, and his success on the national stage came despite a complicated history on racial matters. As a young man, he was a member of the Ku Klux Klan for a brief period, and he joined Southern Democrats in an unsuccessful filibuster against the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    He later apologized for both actions, saying intolerance has no place in America. While supporting later civil rights bills, he opposed busing to integrate schools.

    Returning to meat cutting in West Virginia, he became popular for his fundamentalist Bible lectures. A grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan suggested he run for office.


    ^Out of almost 60 Paragraphs of Praising him they barely Mention the above.

    Check the NYT's Obit on Reagan for an Example of what they do to those who they don't Vote for.

    :)

    peace...

    For the 2 weeks that Lott (R) was Apologizing and Begging for Forgiveness for his Joke @ a 100yr old's Roast, you would have Thought it was Byrd (D) Apologizing for the 2nd Longest Filibuster in History...

    When he, as a US Senator, NOT a "Young Man" or a Child, Filibustered Against Blacks getting Civil Rights in 1964.

    Did Byrd EVER say he was "Sorry"?...

    Did he EVER Apologize Directly for that?...

    For being in the KKK?... A Grand Kleagle in the KKK?...

    I Know his Spokesperson Excused his "There are White *******" Comment a few years back as a Product of Exhaustion, so I can't be Certain he EVER Apologized for his Abject Racism over his Career...

    We Know that Lott (R) Lost his Leadership even AFTER Apologizing Obsessively for a Joke...

    Interesting.

    :)

    peace...
