MJMaloney187: UrukHaiGuyz: MJMaloney187: clancifer: As a Texan, I sincerely apologize for sending such an asshole to Washington. Again.I like him. And I'm glad my vote negates yours.Congrats on supporting an economically illiterate racist sh*tbag, I guess. You're a credit to the state.The kind of racism you're insinuating is a total fabrication. You're deliberately being confrontational in support of a fantasy. That's called being disingenuous.And yes, I am a credit to the State of Texas, but my heart will forever be with Louisiana, mon amour.
ecmoRandomNumbers: There are lots of reasonable people who are just surrounded by assholes.
Cagey B: propasaurus: Something something Robert Byrd.Someone will bring that up in all seriousness, I'm sure. Because continuing to be a racist dickbag until they put you in the ground is the same thing as changing your behavior and acknowleding your mistakes.
Torgo_of_Manos: So back in about 1986 I had just started working as a waiter in a newCity Club in Charlotte.One of my first shifts was a breakfast meeting that featured NC's senior senator, Jesse Helms...As I was clearing plates and filling water, I walked past the head table and crop dusted the crap out of Mr. Helms.It still is one of my proudest work moments.
Flab: James!: 100 corpses?Zombie senators.
Dr Dreidel: IIRC, Cruz was quoting...someone. Sure, he agreed with the cite, but it's not like Cruz came up with that on his own. And he did explain why he wanted 100 Jesse Helmseseses in the Senate - to stop the creep of socialism because old white guys rule and, in this case at least, drool.
DamnYankees: What's interest about this is, as TFA says, Trent Lott's career basically ended for saying something similar. This Cruz quote is barely a blip and it won't cost him anything. The GOP seems to be getting MORE racist over time.
