seems a bit strange

that i couldn't find one prominent politician from the party of lincoln at the 'bloody sunday' march in selma, alabama. this was a significant event in american history and it had to do with opening up voting rights for black folks in the south. if i am wrong and i have overlooked someone from the right- then by all means tell me. i scoured the news reports of the day through 5 pages of google. perhaps that wasn't enough. i mean i realize that listening to ann coulter and dick cheney speak is more important for some- i just found it odd.

Of course not, the modern day conservative movement sprang from opposition to civil rights.

Via my former employer, I have loose ties to Selma, AL and while much progress has been made in the area of civil rights in the south, that particular area still lags decades behind most others.
