    Here is a revealing interview of Governor Haley Barbour of Mississippi, defending Governor Bob McDonnell’s declaring “Confederate History Month” without ever mentioning slavery. Slavery is a “nit,” says Barbour, as in “stop picking at nits.”

    Governor Haley Barbour and Governor Bob McDonnell are two birds of a feather in the same flock. Guess “R” for Republican stands for “Racist.” Must be in the Republican DNA.
