"Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans can come up with is this: Slow down. Stop everything. Let's start over. If you think you have heard these same excuses before, you are right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said: Slow down. It is too early. Let's wait. Things aren't bad enough."--Sen. Harry Reid on ObamaCare, Dec. 7

"Democrat Reid Says 'No Rush' on Health Bill"--headline, Reuters, Jan. 26

Wasn't the Republican party the party of abolitionists?
Isn't that the whole reason that the party was formed in 1854?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_United_States_Republican_Party


The most aggressive and, eventually, most influential of the three was the Radical Republican faction. All Republicans were against slavery, but this group was the most "radical", in its opposition to the "peculiar institution." While conservatives favored gradual emancipation combined with colonization of Freedmen, and while moderates favored emancipation but with reservations, Radicals favored immediate eradication of an institution they viewed as iniquitous, and saw the war as a crusade for "Abolition."

I prefer a strong C, rather than the "corn-fed" look. And don't even get me started on silicone.

Well, he campaigned as a segregationist. When he was elderly. In the 40's. Though that didn't apply to his, er, acts of congress.

Yeah, I seem to remember something coming out about him having an affair with a black woman and having a child with her, right? Or is that just a plot to a movie?
