Joe (Sleepy) Biden recently came out complaining about the failure of congressmen and women to act in a bipartisan manner on issues of common concern.
He misses the ability to work together with political rivals without bitter attacks.
According to the New York Times, "Mr. Biden routinely characterizes that era and those relationships as more civil and functional, with less demonization of the other side, even amid vigorous clashes over explosive issues like race."
Joe has come under a lot of fire from fellow democrats for his reminiscing fondly of working with men who were well known for being segregationists.
Kamala Harris, Cory (Spartacus) Booker, et al are dyspeptic over Joe finding common ground with Herman Eugene Talmadge, U.S. Senator from Georgia and James O. Eastland, U.S. Senator from Missisippi.
What I don't understand is why Biden remembers these guys across the aisle as Republicans.
Both these senators were Democrats as most segregationists were/are.
So instead of attacking Biden for trying to get work done in the Senate, perhaps they could attack him for another gaffe, a lack of memory of events and personages.
My first clue is that these guys were racists. I immediately wondered why they were characterized then as Republicans. Wiki is fairly clear as to their political affiliation.
Remember, Democrats are the party of slavery, Jim Crow laws, Bull Connor, Poll Taxes, etc, etc, etc.
