Unfortunate Rep. Virginia Foxx, who throws words like “tarbaby” around in casual discourse, for some reason said this about the Democrats today: “Just as we were the people who passed the civil rights bills back in the ’60s without very much help from our colleagues across the aisle. They love to engage in revisionist history.”
Well, we think Lyndon Johnson’s signature helped a bit. Many Republicans did vote for the civil rights bills, though! They were rewarded by being voted out, en masse, by the Virginia Foxxes of the world.
