yeegrek: Who's "we", homeboy?Because a New York born, Quebec and Boston educated, physically handicapped Jewish man would have been sooooooo welcome in the Confederacy.
Philip Francis Queeg: Not hanging a few of the traitors after the Civil War was a terrible mistake.
somedude210: well at least he admits he's a racist douchenozzle that want to destroy this country
incendi: yeegrek: Who's "we", homeboy?Because a New York born, Quebec and Boston educated, physically handicapped Jewish man would have been sooooooo welcome in the Confederacy.It is interesting that he automatically equates the modern republican party with the losing side of the civil war....
Sock Ruh Tease: the only thing interesting about the equation is that Krauthammer is being truthful.
Endrick: Wait, the GOP has been telling me for the last few years that they were the party of Lincoln.Lincoln won the civil war.
Sock Ruh Tease: that Krauthammer is being truthful.
Jim_Callahan: Yeah, I'm also going with "who the fark is 'we', jackass?"Statistically, the last person of age in the confederacy (i.e. a full citizen) would have died before the transcontinental railroad was even complete. The last person with any historical ties to it whatsoever (reconstruction) would have died before we dropped a particularly historical bomb on Japan.Since WW2, there has been no meaningful cultural, economic, or transportation barrier between the northern and southern US. Or at least none based around the civil war, we did arbitrarily manufacture some new ones based on demography before economic intergrowth killed those too and made it so basically no one cares.Basically, at this point the most dyed-in-the-wool southerner has no greater cultural claim to Lee than a seventh generation Pennsylvania Quaker.
dittybopper: What a carpetbagger might look like.

kronicfeld: Was it over when the paraplegic syndicated columnists lost the Civil War?
