So why is Paula Deen being railroaded and someone like Sen. Robert Byrd (who used the word in a TV interview in 2001) and then went on to serve 9 more years as President Pro Temp of the senate, never heard a word about it?
And lets not forget that he was a Grand Kleegle of the KKK just for good measure. Yet he was lauded as a hero of the democrats.
So to recap: Sen. Byrd apologizes and all is peaches, Paula Deen uses the word once, in private, apologizes and the left wants her destroyed.
I think I get it now.
Spare me you faux indignation.
