Last week, Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd of Connecticut gave appreciation to Klansmen Senator robert Byrd. He told Byrd that "You would have been a great senator at any moment....you would have been right at the founding of this country, right during the Civil War....I can't think of a single moment in this nation's 220+ year history where you would not have been a valuable asset to this country." As expected, Left-Wing Liberals haven't said a word to critique him in the same way that they did for Trent Lott. They did not even address Dodd's hyprocracy since he was the first Senator to attack Mississippi Senator Trent Lott for similar remarks. There seems to be no similar outrage from Republican Leaders to remove Dodd. Republican Leaders and commentators are minimizing Dodds acclamation to Byrd as not being racist. Dodd said what he felt and Dodd is a racist. And for Republicans to not understand that is offensive to me as well!!
