Mississippi governor tries to write Southern racism out of modern history

By David Edwards and Muriel Kane

As the Republican Party positions itself for a major comeback after its electoral losses in 2006 and 2008, it is looking for ways to undercut Barack Obama's appeal as the nation's first black president without opening itself to accusations of racism.
Evidently as part of that effort, Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour this week laid out a revisionist version of the modern history of the Deep South.
"The people that led the change of parties in the South ... was my generation," the 62 year old Barbour told an interviewer from Human Events. "I went to an integrated college. Never thought twice about it. And it was the old Democrats who had fought for segregation so hard. By my time, people realized that was the past, it was indefensible, wasn't going to be that way any more."
"That is Haley Barbour's history of segregation in the South," MSNBC's Rachel Maddow commented on Thursday. "Essentially, it was all over by his time. That's not the real history. That's not even Haley Barbour's real history.".................

Reminds me of how Germans after WWII all knew nothing, nothing, of what had been going on. Gee, everything was fine in their home towns! Who knew? Yeah, right (then) and yeah, right (now).

These might almost be reasonable assertions if you left out, well, everything that happened in American politics between 1860 and basically now.

But hey, he did! So it's all good. Thank God Strom Thurmond had that great epiphany back in 1964, or the GOP might not be today the Bastion of Tolerance it is now insisting it is.

perfect wording: bastion of tolerance (it is now insisting it is). a legend in their OWN minds...
