That’s right, it’s “Take your Klansman to work day” in the nation’s capitol!
Bush is seen in the picture lending a hand to Senator Robert Byrd, one of the president’s more outspoken critics. The AP photo that appeared in the Charleston Daily Mail didn’t make the rounds much, but had Bush let go of Byrd’s hand I guarantee it would have.
On a side note, I find it hilarious that a former Klansman is third in line in the order of presidential succession. If Byrd were a Republican, this might even make news.
