More on Mississippi and the Flag (See What We Did There?)
The Rev. Dickie yesterday “broke” the “leaked” design for the new Mississippi state flag, which will no longer contain the Confederate battle jack. Lots of people saw the post but almost nobody reacted, leading me to suspect many may have missed his snark.
A joke loses something when it has to be explained, but if it needs explaining maybe it wasn’t a very good joke to start with. In any case:
Get it? (cue laugh track] Never mind.
In any case, my comment here is the same as it is on the NFL: you don’t get full credit for doing the right thing once everybody else is already on the bandwagon.
And the fine, noble citizens of the Great State of Mississippi® have proven they’ll do the right thing when cornered like rats and left no choice whatsoever.
