A follow-up on my last post....
I decided to go back and look up what Lott said and in what context because I honestly didn't remember.
Bush calls Lott comments 'offensive'
...The comment in question was delivered one week ago during a 100th birthday party for the retiring Thurmond -- a party that often resembled a roast of the South Carolina Republican.
Lott noted that in Thurmond's 1948 presidential campaign, whose centerpiece was opposition to integration, Mississippi was one of four Thurmond carried.
"We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years either," Lott said. [Emphasis mine]
If you honestly can't see some significant difference there, you might as well stop reading my blog because I can't imagine you are getting anything out of it.
