Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Then again, I was thinking of something else: The Confederate States was political regime designed to deliver its citizens the right to hold others as slaves on the notion of their racial infiority. This makes it a pretty racist and evil regime, by all imaginabe standards of western civilization.

So why is it, that saying so would still cost you any election in the South even 140 years after the war ended?"

Being a white Southerner, I don't exactly agree with your facts or analogies regarding the confederacy and the implications you draw, but I get the point and have no issues with your diary. I agree with the basic premise.  Bush and his rhetoric are such hopeless cases that I hardly bother to criticize him anymore.  Had he not been elevated to a position of power, who would ever bother to listen to him?  The sad thing is that he is where he is.
