Just Sayin'

In a recent online debate,  some right winger trotted out the old cliche that "Democrats are the real racists because Robert Byrd." 

If your go-to argument to counter the completely accurate observation that today's right wing movement has an ugly strain of racism running through it is to point out that a Democrat, now deceased, was in the Klan in the 1940's and opposed civil rights in the 1960's--over 50 years ago--then you have decisively lost the debate.

Yeah, I would say that translates as "... I got nothin'."
