    If one part of your constituents asks you to violate the civil rights of another portion of your constituents, then you have an obligation to NOT Comply.

    Because once one crosses that line legislatively, any hope of bipartisan or cross cultural cooperation is pretty much out the window.

    That is the second saddest thing I have seen all week. The first saddest being that guy on The Daily Show who is also--oddly enough in the GOP.

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).

      But demanding that politicians never misspeak just gives us really boring, pat sound bites.

      I'll save my outrage for politicians that truly suggest slavery wasn't that bad, as opposed to this guy who was just trying to say he'd try to represent his constituents even if he disagreed with them.

        position of authority.

        How can one live, and be functionally literate in first world country, where books on this topic are accessible, and other media as well--and still think that Slavery was ever good.

        It tore entire villages and families apart.
        It created an new layer of class warfare in this country that will still take generations to heal

        That's just too much for me to process without spouting expletives at this point.

        Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
