That is priceless.
Place Mitch McConnell behind that same podium and he’d already be the EX-Majority Leader.
That’s because, historically, the Confederacy was made up almost entirely of Republicans, while it was the Democrats who won the Civil War and freed the slaves. I believe it was President William Jefferson Clinton in fact who signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
Of course, had the South’s President been a better military man instead of Republican Strom Thurmond, who knows?
Does you remember the Republican convention where the Dems complained the podium “looked like a church” and was a subliminal message to the evangelicals?
I’ve also noticed since the rise of the blogosphere the Dems have suddenly started using flags in their logos. I guess they are trying to use Dean’s advice in “taking back the flag from Rush Limbaugh”.
That must be pretty hard considering their base is stepping on it half the time and the other half is just darned ashamed of it.
