    Funny how you post something as abhorrent as this image and no one complains. This symbol caused this country to divide and kill each other among other things.

    I certainly don't think it is funny and over the past 20 years African Americans have made it an issue that Southern States remove this symbol from the State houses.

    Did you misspeak there? That symbol caused anything?

    Harold Ford said he would wind up his campaign at the Rebel Bar and Grill and place with Confederate paraphernalia and a place where the owners and patrons have supported him.

    I guess he felt to appeal to that spectra of the population it was a good idea but I kind of think it's kind of repugnant to a place giving honor to the symbol of a society that enslaved your people.

    On that note it is different for a private establishment to show the flag and to have it on a state house.

    Why Ford lost...

    Ford lost b/c...


    1-He's a liberal (84% rating by ADA--Fat Teddy has a 90% rating) and TN is moderately conservative; they didn't even go for Gore, their home-boy when he ran for Prez. Also, TN voted 80/20 against gay marriage.

    2-His family is a strong-arm political machine in Memphis with it's large black voter base, but that "dog don't hunt" in the rest of TN.

    3-His record as a Congressman: over 300 missed votes while off on junkets privately paid for my "big money" 'rat supporters.

    4-He's black

    Dont forget the Dem/lib flag logic

    Sickle & Hammer, Islamic Nations Flags, Hezbollah, UN, Confederate - Good-
    raise those banners high

    US Stars & Stripes, Israel - Bad - Burn em

    Nice rationalization because he's a democrat. I guess if Corker has done it, he would have "gone over the line".

    How much whining would the Democrats had done about voter irregularities if the Webb/Allen race would have come out with Allen the winner.

    Amazing, with the Dems winning the House & Senate, no whines of voter irregularity!!

    There is such a thing in our culture that a person of a certain group can associate with an item of prejudice against himself or use ethnic humor in a way that others can't. Yes you are absolutely right. Corker posing in front of a Confederate flag means something completely different then Ford doing it. For Ford it means - hey Tenn. look even these rednecks are for me - It's cool. You can vote for a black guy. For Corker it would be - Hey we are sons and daughters of the Confederacy and we should support our own.

    Is the same concept as Borat. If Cohen wasn't Jewish there would be no way he could get away with the anti-Semitic stuff in the movie.
