John Powell for all his life was a Democrat. Sen. Robert Byrd (D) rose to a
high position in that party yet was throughout WWII a Grand Kleagle. Byrd
even refused to join the military because he might have to serve alongside
“race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.” As
recently as 2005, in his memoir, Byrd describes the KKK as a fraternal
assembly of "upstanding people". He was the only senator to vote against
both African-American Supreme Court nominees Thurgood Marshall and Clarence
Thomas.

Who on "the right" or even in the Republican party can boast such a record?
Just sayin'.
