Tea Bagger Rand Paul celebrates at historically all-white country club

The Bowling Green Country Club where Tea Bagger Rand Paul celebrated his primary victory last night was historically an exclusive all-white institution, segregated as recently as the late 60's/early 70's.

According to a history of Western Kentucky University, "In 1967 the golf team, which had no practice course, was invited to use the facilities of the Bowling Green Country Club. Then it was discovered that the team might have a black member. The Country Club was not integrated, and the invitation came under question." The university team wound up going elsewhere for its practices.

To further drive the racist point home, Paul remarked on Good Morning America, since Tiger Woods, golf country clubs are no longer ‘exclusive.’

The Louisville Courier Journal also helps pull the sheet off of Rand Paul:
The trouble with Dr. Paul is that despite his independent thinking, much of what he stands for is repulsive to people in the mainstream. For instance, he holds an unacceptable view of civil rights, saying that while the federal government can enforce integration of government jobs and facilities, private business people should be able to decide whether they want to serve black people, or gays, or any other minority group.
