2. Unfortunately, what we think of as "devastating"...

is all too often a desireable feature to the RW racist assholes who are taking over.

3. That's the truth. It's a desirable character trait for white wingers.

4. I grew up among those old bigots. It's horrifying to see the last of them take hold.

But I truly believe this is the last of them. As much as Trump's followers are assholes they're just that, followers. There are few of the old style bigots left. The new bigots are going to have a short shelf life. There are too many young, smart, global thinkers coming up through the ranks.

5. Another striking fact is that

Back then he was denied senate comfirmation because of it. We have been told countless times since president Obama's election that we are now a post racial society...

Well, Session might well end up AG when he could not clear the federal bench. We managed to go backwards instead of forward and its only getting worse. Heck, I would not be surprised to see David Duke running for office soon.
