...How about more proof that the rightwing hasn't changed a bit, just whitewashing the past to cover their crimes? Here's the National Review's tribute to Strom Thurmond at http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/comment-edwards120502.asp:
"[Strom Thurmond] opposed the liberal civil-rights movement because it sought to force radical change. He opposed not its goals, but its tactics . . . It forsook the legislative route of state legislatures and ordered, measured, consensual change for the heavy, centralized hand of the federal government and the courts."
Yep-- the same magazine that advocated stripping blacks of the vote in the South dares to condemn the civil rights movement for not pursuing change in those racist states...
