How many crosses did he have on his cake?

From the Charleston Daily Mail:
Possible Republican challenger Jeanine Pirro has criticized Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for co-sponsoring a birthday party for Sen. Robert C. Byrd, citing his long-ago membership in the Ku Klux Klan and a racially charged 2001 comment.

Pirro's complaint came a day after The Washington Post reported that Clinton and the Senate's eight other Democratic female senators were hosting a 88th birthday party for Byrd, a West Virginia Democrat, Tuesday night at the home of civil rights pioneer Frederick Douglass.

"It's outrageous and shocking that Senator Clinton and her Democrat colleagues would choose Frederick Douglass' house to honor Senator Robert Byrd, who has a history of involvement with hate groups and has used racial slurs publicly,'' said Pirro spokeswoman Andrea Tantaros.

Holy shit does Running At The Mouth take down Hillary on this. From his post, "They're Also Planning a Battered Women's Charity at O.J.'s Brenwood Estate":
I honestly don't know what to make of this. It has to be one of three things: (1) Hillary Clinton has titanium balls; (2) Hillary Clinton is borderline retarded; or (3) Hillary Clinton thinks Americans, especially black Americans, are borderline retarded. One of those has to explain why she thinks it's okay to throw a birthday party for former KKK Kleagle Robert Byrd at . . . wait for it . . . Frederick Douglass's house.
Absolutely spot on.
