Clinton Defends Byrd's KKK Ties: "He Was Trying To Get Elected"
"He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I'll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected," former President Bill Clinton said of Sen. Robert Byrd.
"And maybe he did something he shouldn't have done come and he spent the rest of his life making it up. And that's what a good person does. There are no perfect people. There are certainly no perfect politicians," he added.
Doesn't it make you just feel so warm and fuzzy inside how abundandly forgiving these compassionate liberals are to everyone regardless of their political affiliation?
