It has always surprised me that conservatives still have such a hard time getting over the 60's, as they see them. It's been 38 years since the Summer of Love. Of course, it took Southerners over 100 years before they finally started to get over the Civil War and vote Republican. It finally took passage of the Civil Rights Act.

You know, other events also occurred in the 60's: Riots that killed a substantial number of people when the University of Mississippi was integrated; the slayings of three civil rights workers in Mississippi; Lester Maddux; George Wallace, "Segregation now, segregation forever"; church bombings in Birmingham; Vietnam.

Maybe Pelosi's staff should respond with a picture of a robed Klansman next time they put out a criticism of Tom DeLay.
