Strom Thurmond and Al Sharpton

This is sure to be all over the news tomorrow, but I couldn't wait to comment.

Professional genealogists have discovered that Al Sharpton's ancestors were slaves owned by Strom Thurmond's relatives.

Is it wrong that this news causes me all sorts of glee? I don't want to examine that reaction too closely.

Brian says that, given Thurmond's proclivities with the ladies and historical practices of slaveowners, maybe Thurmond and Sharpton are related. Hee!
