It seems that Representative Alan Grayson (D-somewhere) doesn't seem to know history. He's conflated the Tea Party with the KKK. Oh, yeah, he went there.
The only problem, Congressman, is that the KKK was Democrat, all the way down. No Republicans of any stripe in the KKK. No, sir, it was all Democrat. I'd think that a US Representative would know that, and would stop bringing it up. But as long as you bring it up, I'll be here to remind you.
