And again, remembering Byrd:

He can’t help it — he was born one.
Well, he is, after all, a Clymer...
Robert? I thought it was Sheets Byrd.
It is fitting that “Clymer” has become a popular synonym for the terminal point of the human alimentary canal, even if it will forever be Adam’s cross to burn.. I meant “bear”. Sorry.
The writers at the old gray whore are biased? so what else is new?
What a clymer.
Thurmond: In 1940, he called on the grand jury in Greenville to be ready to take action against the Ku Klux Klan, which, he said, represented “the most abominable type of lawlessness.”
Byrd: In the early 1940s, he organized a 150-member klavern, or chapter, of the Klan in Sophia, W.Va., and was chosen its leader at a meeting. After the meeting, Joel L. Baskin, the Klans grand dragon for the region, suggested that Mr. Byrd use his talents for leadership by going into politics.
