well its good to apologize when you're wrong.

this part in particular was interesting. it was sort of a backhanded apology.

Mr. President, I think we’ve all here in the Senate kind of lost the aura of Robert Byrd, who was such a stickler for Senate procedure

the Aura of Robert Byrd..... um....um.... o.k ?!?!

somewhere in a grave Robert Byrd's corpse just sat up and said "what the hell ? we have a black man as president !! I better find my way back to the senate". Satan is considering letting him out for good behavior.

stay classy my Democrat friends, stay classy !

Allowing a bit of nastiness and direct confrontation on occasion does at least make politics more interesting. I love to see some of those British politicians throw out a few good insults. They know it is often just theater and treat it as such.

Ahh, the lost aura of the Senate's last KKK member. Whatever will we do without the old hatemonger throwing racist bile around anymore? Is it legal for Canadian lawyers to get into the Senate? If so, his successor is wasting away in relative obscurity up in Toronto.
We've got Jeff Sessions covering those bases.

I'd say there is a huge difference between recognizing someone's abilities as an administrator/procedurist and embracing their social agenda, but I wouldn't expect such a toonishly stereotypical TP member to understand that. Yer fer us or again' us right?

I'm guessing Paul Ryan and Romney are leftist hacks these days, what with thinking this ploy is shitty and all.

I would tend to agree, but think it was still ill thought out. But then maybe he is making a point that even hate mongers like that still understood decorum and procedure, and what this says about today's batch of yahoo's.

Forget Romney, he's not considered a conservative. Use Scott Walker instead
