That paragon of morality, impeached former-president Bill "Slick Willy" Clinton accuses Republicans who criticize Sen. Trent Lott of being hypocritical.
"How do they think they got a majority in the South anyway?" Clinton told CNN outside a business luncheon he was attending. "I think what they are really upset about is that he made public their strategy."
He added: "They try to suppress black voting, they ran on the Confederate flag in Georgia and South Carolina, and from top to bottom the Republicans supported it."
Bill, just go back into your hole. We don't need morality lessons from you.
Apparently in Clinton's -- and a whole lot of other liberals' world -- every Republican is part of the "vast, right-wing conspiracy" that wants to keep the "people" down. Voters aren't buying it, as witnessed by the last election, and all of Clinton's, Krugman's and Gore's outrage won't make it true.
Republican is not synonymous with "racist."
Frankly, I'm getting sick and tired (and hopping mad) every time some pompous ass tars Republicans with the brush.
Republicans aren't the ones, when it comes to jobs or college admissions, who state that everyone is equal (only some animals are more equal than others.)
Republicans are the ones that judge people as Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated: "not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
Frankly, I'm missing the medieval days when you could prove the objective truth of a statement by a contest at arms -- God would give the right one the power to prevail.
I'd like to challenge Bubba to a fistfight.
