TAPPED on NRO on Byrd on Condi...

TAPPED takes Kathryn Jean Lopez of National Review Online to task for mentioning Sen. Robert Byrd's efforts to delay the confirmation vote of Condleeza Rice. They call it a variation on the "conservo-race card".

One semi-obvious point. If you can't tweak a former GRAND SWIZZLE-STICK OF THE KU KLUX KRUNKIN' KLAN over a point of racial politics, who CAN you?

There is much good to say about Robert Byrd, but sometimes, taking the cheap shot is a moral imperative. The other side rarely misses the chance to bytch-slap Trent Lott or Strom Thurmond. It's only fair.
