I honestly don't know what to make of this. It has to be one of three things: (1) Hillary Clinton has titanium balls; (2) Hillary Clinton is borderline retarded; or (3) Hillary Clinton thinks Americans, especially black Americans, are borderline retarded. One of those has to explain why she thinks it's okay to throw a birthday party for former KKK Kleagle Robert Byrd at . . . wait for it . . . Frederick Douglass's house.
When a possible Republican challenger to Hillary called her on it, Hillary whined that she was being "insult[ed] and attack[ed]." Of course. This is one of the Democrats' favorite tactics: whenever facts, like Senate voting records for example, are presented that show a Democrat to be feckless, mendacious or hypocritical, they accuse a Republican of playing dirty pool and they whine that they're being "attacked." If presenting facts is an attack, what about innuendo? Or rumor? Or fake but accurate documents?
In the article linked above, much is made about Byrd's membership being "brief" and "long ago," as if it was some harmless youthful indiscretion. Byrd's subsequent actions, such as filibustering the 1964 Civil Rights Amendment, and using the "n word" in a 2001 interview, put the lie to that notion. As Marathon Pundit points out (in a great turn of phrase), Byrd may have left the Klan, but the Klan didn't leave him.
