Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Racist Alabama Senator Who's Named After Two Confederate Generals And Is Opposed To Voting Rights Insists He's Not A Racist

The pick for U.S. Attorney General, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, has a long history of opposing voting rights, joking about the KKK, and making racial slurs.  These are among the reasons he was once denied a federal judgeship.  But of course, good ol' Jeff says he's not a racist, no sir:

"These are damnably false accusations.  I did not harbor race-based animosities.  I did not."

That's a mighty fine denial, Jeffy . . . despite the evidence to the contrary.

Have you ever met a racist who honestly acknowledged his racism?  Me either.
