Lacklustre Spin Of The Day

Michael Tomasky mourns the death of long serving Democratic senator Robert Byrd in the Guardian:
Detractors point to his opposition to civil rights in 1964 and his brief membership in the Ku Klux Klan as evidence of his reactionary leanings.
As long as it was brief I guess.....

Because for the likes of Tomasky, being in the Ku Klux Klan is a nuanced decision that needs to be seen in context...... if it is by a liberal Democrat.
