A Byrd in the Hand...

Rememer Senator Byrd? The guy who compared Republicans in the Senate to Nazis for wanting to actually vote on judicial nominees? Well, the liberal WaPo has an article on Byrd and his new book. Right Wing News has a good question:
"...can't we all agree that a former "Grand Cyclops" of the Ku Klux Klan who filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 shouldn't be one of the most prominent representatives of the Democratic Party in the Senate of the United States in these days and times?"
Evidently not.

And another question that I have:
Why is it that it is always those on the left who call those on the right Nazis?
And it is ... ALWAYS. I have never, ever heard of a Republican calling a Democrat a Nazi. Don't these people know that "Nazi" is short for "National Socialist," and that Hitler was a Socialist? Also, it seems pretty obvious, to me anyway, that calling someone a Nazi is a form of holocaust denial (that or blatant ignorance) 99.9% of the time. As it is, the Democrat party is looking more and more anti-Semitic all the time. It's to the point where they've had to start issuing statements like this one.
