From the Department of Irony – Political Division

Former KKK Grand High Vizier Or Whatever Robert Byrd endorses presidential candidate Barack Obama, who I’m pretty sure is black.

Byrd praised both Obama and Hillary Clinton, saying their “integrity, honor, love for this country and strong belief in our Constitution I deeply respect…

“Barack Obama is a noble-hearted patriot and humble Christian, and he has my full faith and support,” Byrd concluded.”

Funny how the world turns, ain’t it? And the strangest thing to me is not that Byrd made the endorsement, but that Obama accepted it. I guess anything can be forgiven as long as you’re in the right party.
