Well there’s Mississippi racism and then there’s Oklahoma racism…
Looks like Don Nickles, the man who wants Trent Lott’s corner office has the same civil rights voting record as old HelmetHead.
The NAACP says that over the past decade, Nickles and Lott have voted the same on almost every issue deemed important by the civil rights community. And in almost every case, their votes were contrary to the wishes of that community.
On the other hand, both Nickles, of Oklahoma, and Lott, of Mississippi, win the highest ratings from conservative groups. In 2000, the American Conservative Union gave both 100 percent ratings on key votes.
So basically Okie Don is just another ‘Trent Lott Republican’. Looks like the Republican “big tent” is just a bunch of white sheets sewn together.
