Excellent post, wardaddy (and not a bad rant, either).

thanks...I have never understood why some folks have to believe things to have been a mythic way just to feel ennobled maybe...about race in particular...I grew up in segregation...whites were not bad/evil folks then by and large...what makes folks today think they are better....they seem far less moral to me..

politics is convoluted and serpentine and circuitous in hindsight

this blather of GOP always good and Dems always bad...may be true 80% of the time especially since 1980 but that 20% exception kills us

would today's average conservative rather have John Stennis or Strom Thurmond or Sonny Montgomery fighting communism (hence Islam) or Lowell Wiecker or Nelson Rockefeller...or even Olympia Snowe?

this socially conservative GOP is a new animal...the Dixiecrats were more culturally conservative than most GOP at that time
