Wallace was, of course, a Democrat. So were Al Gore Sr., Robert Byrd(the conscience of the Senate) and Bill Clinton hero J. William Fulbright, all of whom filibustered and voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Democrats have been able to slip this nasty legacy, thanks in large part to a mainstream media that is willing to help them rewrite history. But MSNBC has taken the next step, switching Wallace to the Republican party.
Nothing drives liberals crazier than bringing this up. And by the way, as for the notion that all the Dixiecrats became Republican. NONE of them names above did.
