Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia dead at 92...
Longest Serving Senator, Reformed KKK Member..
Voted against 1964 Civil Rights Act; opposed 'blackest specimen from the wilds'... Nice huh?
No, in this case with one of their top flight worst of the worst criminals in congressional history, who's greatest achievements featured a proud stint as a grand Kleagle of the KKK, we'll wait and see what happens here with Senator Robert "Sheets" Byrd and report back later as more information surfaces about what put him there.
Perhaps it's massive guilt for shafting the American people all his life right through to his possible death bed, who knows....that is of course aside from his closest 'sheet wearing' confidants, who are understandably keeping quiet down at the Klan headquarters this afternoon preparing for the loss of a great leader to them.
Sen. Robert Byrd, the longest-serving member of Congress, was admitted to a Washington-area hospital last week and is considered "seriously ill," according to a statement released today by his office.Byrd, 92, was admitted to the hospital after "suffering from what was believed to be heat exhaustion and severe dehydration as a result of the extreme temperatures," according to the statement. "However, upon further examination by his doctors, other conditions have developed which has resulted in his condition being described as 'serious.' "In November, Byrd broke the record for congressional service that had been set by Democrat Carl Hayden of Arizona, who served in the House and Senate from 1912 to 1969, according to the Associated Press. Byrd began his career in Washington in 1952 with his election to the House. His elevation to the Senate came six years later.
