Well, it’s not like he was never there. He was in DC for decades as the Senator from Alabama (he was unusual for the time, more like what we see today of members serving for so long, since many of his contemporaries would serve 6 years or less and go home). Folks in DC at the time considered King and James Buchanan to be, uh, shall we say, virtually husband and wife.

"Listen, you can defend this racist, bigot all you want. Maybe you share his views and "moral code." I don't."

I will defend his actions I agree with, such as adhering to the rules of the Senate even though tossing aside such rules benefits his party, I do not nor have not defended his involvement with the Klan. Is he still a member? people do change you know.

I do not agree with him politically in the least but at least he does adhere to a code few in the Senate do these days and I am referring to folks in both parties.

And I won't dance on someones grave who has at least appeared to have changed his ways especially while he lies dying. (Kennedy on the other hand never changed no matter how they tried to redress the pig.)

You however may continue to show us how its done. Maybe you can fly down to West Virgina to burn a cross on Senator Byrd's front yard to give him a taste of justice. Me I am gonna offer up prayers for his soul and the comfort of his family.

Good Day to you.

The bottom line is you continue to defend him despite his past, including his powerful position within the Klan and subsequent actions while in Congress. You are defending the indefensible.

(Kennedy on the other hand never changed no matter how they tried to redress the pig.)

I guess you never read Kennedy's memoir that came out after he died where he claimed to be sorry for all the sins he committed.

You however may continue to show us how its done. Maybe you can fly down to West Virgina to burn a cross on Senator Byrd's front yard to give him a taste of justice. Me I am gonna offer up prayers for his soul and the comfort of his family.

Burn a cross? Sorry, but that is Byrd's MO. I offer no prayers for his soul and hope that he rots in Hell. It is a disgrace that we have someone like him serving in the Senate.

"The bottom line is you continue to defend him despite his past,"

Please point out the parts wherein I defend his actions and you don't agree with the ones I defend.

Sorry about the late response to your note....I, for one, will be as active as possible in getting rid of these old fools in Washington. I will be looking at voting out anyone that has more than 2 terms in office. But, realistically, in order to deal with the multitudes of socialists in Washington we do need to keep those with experience opposed to that ideolog thinking and voting. The left will try to maintain their numbers. We have to convince the people who vote but don’t read the backgrounds of the candidates that not all candidates are good candidates simply because they have been elected before.
