To: Colonel Kangaroo
Not many people know who Bilbo was, or Lester Maddox, or Huey Long, or Talmadge. These guys were A-1 crooks and then they jumped over to the other side and became left wing Democrat lapdogs when the winds changed. Wallace almost won the presidency for Hubert Humphrey. Stennis voted against Bork. They were knaves and charlatans.
But the biggest one was Jimmy Carter, who ran for governor blasting Carl Sanders as a liberal, and then ran around talking about MLK’s father as “Daddy King.”

I believe Carter is a model for what a lot of Southern Democrats would have turned into had they lived long enough, Robert Byrd being another. But this relatively recent history is unknown to the younger productions of the educational establishment.
