Senator Robert Byrd - a United States senator for over 50 years died on Monday. He was one of the longest serving senator and the longest serving member of Congress in the history of the United States Congress.
President Obama and Vice President Biden are attending the memorial service today in Virginia to honor this man.
All the press is celebrating this long serving democrat and I am sure he has done much good over 50 years of serving this country.
Having said that, no press coverage of any kind about the 14 hours of filibuster to stop the civil rights act.
I thought democrats were the ones who herald civil rights?
Senator Byrd was also a member of the Ku Klux Klan as a top member with the title of Grand Cyclops?
Sounds very heart warming doesn't it?
I guess the liberal press forgot to mention this in much of their commentaries - not too important -
