    who said on TV that he would devote the rest of his life to promoting civil rights? I may have dreamed that, but I do remember something along those lines.

    Voting is the means by which the public is distracted from the realities of power and its exercise.

      At any rate, it was never something he did whilst serving in the house.  Luckily he lost his minority speakership due to the content Albanius quoted.  It's hard to fathom that Republicans were still openly shamed of displaying bigotry in 2002.  

      They've fallen a long, long way in 12 years.  They used to attempt to hide it or act ashamed by of it at any rate.
