Please show me any place where I've said what Ted Kennedy or Robert Byrd did 30+ years ago was OK (or even "not so bad"). I didn't. I said their actions were irrelevant to this discussion unless there's evidence that they are guilty of pedophilia.
i get where you are coming from bf....but i also do think they have some relevance to this discussion. you have called out the rebublicans to take action against those that hold office who are on the list...(at least i believe -- such as things like writing our representatives) i agree with you - and i feel anyone who commits such a crime should be punished to the max.
where the relevance comes in - is this is getting labled a party line thing. have you taken the same action towards the folks that w*gs mentioned, as to the folks you have asked "what are you doing about it?"
i think that is where the relevance is....
