GOP and a Southern history
December 16, 2002 6:28 AM   Subscribe

Trent Lott and the GOP grew up together in the South. They both have a painful secret. Newsweek cover story on the GOP. "A somewhat opinionated but generally fact- and history-based (which is why I found it unusual enough to post) look at the place of the Republican party in the history of American civil rights."

Wow. Look 6 posts down. Do people not even read the front page before they post?

Well, four panels must've read the front page because he/she quoted what oissubke wrote in the earlier post. Definitely odd.

I suspect he quoted the same language in an effort to get in an ideological dig at oissubke. It seems a little juvenile, but whatever.

I bet that Ben Stein is up to his old trick again.

Exactly. It's a different article. Do people not even read the links before making knee-jerk assaults based on the similarity of ten words of FPP text, gleuschk?

That said, if this is a counter to the NewsMax post, perhaps it would have been better as a comment in that thread. But reading it, I think it has a it more content than that.

eep. "has a it" = "has a lot"

It's all in futility anyway, being that the link is to MSNBC Newsweek's front page and not the actual article. Neverminding the error in judgement of newsfilteritis, partisan bickering, etc. etc.

Ok. Retracted, with apology. Sorry, four panels.

  IMG: Lott in cheerleading squad

Is that just a shadow, or does that young swinger have a groovy soul-patch?
