Just Asking

Can any current Democrat tell me with a straight face that you’re not the least bit embarrassed that resistance to the first black female Secretary of State in American history was lead among Senate Democrats by a living, breathing former KKK member?

Are there no Democrats concerned that your party now boasts the only Senator who has voted against confirming both black Supreme Court justices (Marshall and Thomas), voted against the Civil Rights Act, and now voted against a black Secretary of State as well? Does the pattern here disturb you in the least?

Trent Lott made an indelicate remark about Strom Thurmond's segregationist past and as a result conservative bloggers raised an outcry that forced him to resign from Senate leadership. Will there be any similar lefty-blogger outrage turned against Senator KKK?
