Quote of the Day

Jonathan Chait, on the idea of Mississippi Gov. Haley "Boss Hogg" Barbour running for president, especially since he keeps a Stars and Bars Confederate flag signed by Jefferson Davis in his office:

A Confederate battle flag signed by Jefferson Davis? Seriously? I'm not sure what the Democratic equivalent of this would be. Maybe a Soviet flag signed by Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.
That's one more reason I'm a Democrat. We don't have a neo-confederate wing. Not anymore, anyway.
