Why is it silly? The KKK was started by Democrats. Sen. Byrd of W. VA was a grand wizard of the KKK. He was a Senator up until 2010 when he died. Remember the s--t storm when Bill First said a few words at Strom Thurmond's b-day party? But a former grand wizard of the KKK as a 50 year plus member of the senate.....bygones will be bygones as long as he's a Democrat.
