liberal pundit Joe Klein needs a history lesson

Joe Klein makes the following statement:

In others words, it is more patriotic to be in favor of civil rights legislation than to oppose it...

Mr. Klein forgets, or is blissfully ignorant of the fact that the Civil Rights Act passed because a majority of Republicans voted for it, along with a minority of the democrats who controlled Congress at the time. Among the liberal democrats who voted against the Civil Rights Act were Senator Al Gore, Sr. and the former KKK Grand Kleagle, Senator Robert Bird.
