Barack Obama raising money for Sen. Robert Byrd?

Story from the Illinois Leader. Barack Obama who talked about "the need for a new political discourse" throughout his Senate campaign in '04, is now rediscovering his partisan passions. He is attempting to raise money for the Senator from West Virginia, Robert Byrd.

According to this article, Sen. Obama is "subjugating his own stated credo on issues like civil rights to his desire to help put the U.S. Senate back in Democratic hands--specifically, the hands of former Ku Klux Klansman and current West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV)."

The Democratic Party is supposedly the party of Civil Rights. Standing up for minorities but they continue to support a throwback to the days when the Democratic Party was dominated by the Segregationist Southern wing. Sen. Byrd himself was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

What up Mr. Jenkins.... It’s your brother Faheem.... Act like you don’t know!!

I just happened to cruise by PeeDubb today to see how your racist conservative friends are reacting to the death of one our best and brightest... Johnnie Cochran. From what I seen they are responding just as I thought they would. Never the less, it is good you have stepped outside their madness and set up a Blog, to express your viewpoint that does not always agree with the overall consensus over there. However I still know you subscribe to that conservative madness and need a wake up call. I will be checking in on you every now and then.

In the mean time, you know how I get down so check out It is the Blog where those two brothers that gave you PeeDubb fools so much hell reside.

As for this particular topic here, Barrack is part of the machine and to expect anything different from him when it comes to partisan politics is not wise. However his Pell grant bill is on point.
