    "Sheets" is the nickname that Tip O'Neil gave Byrd. It was their own little inside joke. It has nothing to do with what Byrd wore.

    But come on, even using "many" is stretching it, isn't it? A number of blacks were in the KKK at one time. I saw one interviewed last year on t.v.

    By the way, Ezola Foster, the Reform Party's Veep nominee in 2000, and an African-American, is a member of the JBS.

    Jimmy, I have just reviewed every single post that I have made on this board that mentions the word "Republican." There is not one single post where I made a generalzation without qualifying it with the type of modifier suggested above.

    Once again, perhaps you should consider not being such a condescending elephant ;-)

    I didn't know that. Interesting. Thanks for the info.

    Are there "many" grains of sand that are black? Trillions, at least. Is that not "many?"

    And when I point out that many grains of sand are black, are you going to accuse me of saying that all grains of sand are black?

    Considering there are more grains of sand than there are Republicans, I don't think so.

    This is what you said to me once when I said I was unaware of a certain fact.

    "Either you are lying, or you are uninformed."

    I'm not saying that about you now, just pointing this out.

    Actually, I still think that is clearly true.

    I've already admitted that I was not aware of the facts that you stated. But if it will make you feel better, I will say specifically that in this case, I was uninformed.

    As I often I am. In those cases, I try to admit my ignorance and not pretend to be an expert. I know, that must sound crazy.

    And certainly more black grains of sand than black Republicans.

    I was going to suggest the same thing.

    I think you have sufficiently stated the point that you think there are "many" racist republicans, those who are members of the KKK, whoever they are.

    Now, when people get all over your case for making an overgeneralization, you say that you weren't doing so... you were just saying "many." How could that not be true?

    There are also "many" racist blacks. Many grains of sand on Mars. There are "many" of this and that just about everywhere in every category. Therefore, if you weren't insulting republicans for being associated with the KKK, you were saying something that, basically, embraces everything, and essentially means nothing.

    Of course, if you were just stating a fact that had no implications for any indictment on the republican party, then your statement would be a void argument. But you said it, and intending to somehow implicate the republican party. In the same post, you accused GWB for going to war because his "daddy" was almost assasinated by Saddam.

    According to J. Steinbeck's novels I do, in Bakersfield. That's okie country, and it's still well represented. But you make the overgeneralization that all who live in the south will agree with you, instead of the possibility that your experienced opinion could be overgeneralized.

    I don't know if I totally believe this... but how many lib. party office holders are white? How many lib. party members are white?

    So does the Lib. party, doesn't it?

    I'm glad you think so highly of the Lib. party. Since you know every Liberatarian that exists in the south ("not a single one"), you can let us know that they are without blemish. Your self-criticism is not charming.
