Obama and the KKK's Byrd both issue racist vote on Brown...

Barack Obama and Robert Byrd both excercised their right to vote as United States Senators late Wednesday afternoon in the vote to confirm Janice Rogers Brown to the U.S. District Court of Appeals.

And even though there was a day when the former Grand Kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan would have spit on Obama as much as look at him - heck he might have even wanted to burn across on his lawn or drag him behind a truck.

But there was Obama, arm in arm, with Senator Klan Grandpa casting a vote that would attempt to prevent one of the most inspiring Americans to rise from the ashes of prejudice and racism and eventually come to serve her nation in the California Supreme Court.

She would be prevented from going further if Byrd and Obama had their way. Fortunately they got no where near it. Janice Rogers Brown has just been confirmed by a vote of 56 to 43.
