Charlie Don't Know Bull

Someone ought to let Charlie Rengal know:

"George Bush is our Bull Connor. And if that doesn’t get to you, nothing will be able to get to you. It’s time for us to be able to say that we’re sick and tired, we’re fired up and we’re not going to take it anymore."

What? Stupidity? Ignorance of history? When it comes to Civil Rights Charlie, remember YOUR party stood in opposition to the Civil Rights Bill of 1964:

Via Wikipedia:

"Republican Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen pushed the bill through Congress. The bill divided both political parties and engendered a long-term change in the demographics of both. President Lyndon Johnson realized that supporting this bill would mean losing the South's overwhelming Democratic Party majority (which did happen, with some exceptions). After the Democrats led an 83 day filibuster against the bill, with WV senator Robert Byrd speaking for more than 14 straight hours, both parties voted overwhelmingly in favor of the Act, enabling its passage."

Let's not forget Mayor Nagin and most of the city counsel of New Orleans is black as well.
