Ted Rall for January 15, 2000
You thought it was settled at appomattox, but the confederacy is back! It all started when republican presidential candidates came out in favor of flying the stars-and-bars atop the South Carolina State House. (George Q Bush: It's up to them!) (Steve Forbes: Yee ha!) (John McCain: My ancestors fought for the south and she will rise again!) Then even the democrats refused to condemn the flag as an evil symbol of racism and slavery! (Man: I support the right of the people of South Carolina to remove the confederate flag.) Your politicians: so desperate to win that they'll suck up to defeated, bigoted traitors. (Man 2: It's part of the south's heritage, not a racial thing.) (Man 3: I'm staying home this November) Coming: Clinton apologizes for Sherman's March.
