Run, Haley! Run!

Mississippi Governor Boss Hogg, who just a few weeks ago characterized the Civil Rights era in 1960's Mississippi as "not that bad" now will not criticize an attempt to honor a Confederate General who went on to become one of the early leaders of the KKK in the form of a license plate.
In the latest racially charged incident in his home state, Haley Barbour on Tuesday drew fire when he refused to condemn a proposal honoring a Ku Klux Klan leader and Confederate general on a state license plate.
"I don't go around denouncing people. That's not going to happen," Barbour, who is considering a run for the White House in 2012, said when asked about the plate, the Associated Press reported. "I know there's not a chance it'll become law."
Not a chance? We'll see about that. They sure like to top each other in the Idiot Department over at the Grand Ol' Party, don't they?
