Democrats send Klansman Byrd after Dr. Rice

Democratic Senator Robert "Sheets" Byrd has booked an entire hour tomorrow to oppose the nomination of Dr. Condoleeza Rice as Secretary of State; the first African-American woman to hold the post. But if you were to take AP's word on the matter, you would think Byrd was mearly giving an anti-war speech:

Two Democratic opponents of the war, Sens. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia and Barbara Boxer of California, have booked an hour each to speak, with eight other Democrats due to weigh in with briefer speeches.

This party has really lost its mind. They decide to have the party basket case, Babs Boxer, and their resident Klansman, Sen. Bryd, act as the star performers in their attempt to smear Dr. Rice's nomination as Sec. State. And to top it off, they offer if up as an "anti-war" statement; as if Rice could do anything to stop combat operations in Iraq as Secretary of State.

Maybe during his speech Sen. Byrd will offer some of the inspiring rhetoric he has used in the very recent past:

There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time; I'm going to use that word.
-Sen. Robert Byrd, March 4, 2001

Do you think after the 2006 elections, when they get their lunch handed to them again, the Democrats will rethink this whole theory they have that Americans would agree with everything they have to say so long as they "get the message out" better? These people have a political "tin ear".
