It’s kind of like back in 2004 when everyone was saying that Kerry won the first debate, but Team Kerry was truly disappointed, considering it a loss, because they hadn’t managed to trick Bush into saying something stupid.

The U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday formally apologized for the U.S. government role in slavery and the Jim Crow laws which legalized segregation for a century after the emancipation of slaves in 1865.
