Johnny Comes Marching Home -

Johnny Comes Marching Home

It seems as though Governor Dean has a fondness for the ole’ Stars and Bars, or at least he wants the vote of those who run Johnny Reb up the flag pole. Dean said, “I still want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks.” I didn’t know the Klan was a group that Dean would pander to. Are they that big of a voting block in the South? The next think you know, Dean will be burning crosses at campaign rallies and David Duke will be out on the stump for Dean. And what Dean group would be complete without a website, “Klansmen for Dean.” I’m sure Howard could get Robert Byrd to blog for him.

Of course the really ridiculous thing about this is Dean is getting a pass from groups such as the NAACP and Rainbow Push when it comes to this statement. The only people criticizing him are the eight other clowns running for President. If a Republican so much as cuts a loud fart somewhere in the vicinity of the Confederate flag he gets labeled a racist and the NAACP is swearing up and down that he has a white robe and hood in his closet. But hey, double standards when it comes to race are great, especially if you’re a Democrat.
