Dead and back again: Now onto racism in Wilson saga

Image by Flickr user brykmantra Image by 20090916-debate.jpg This debate's not doing great, but it's not dead yet.

To many the Joe Wilson outburst has long been over, and that was before the House officially ruled.

Now that long over, over matter has had a bit of new life breathed into thanks to Jimmy Carter remarking that Wilson's comment was 'racist.'


Well, since we're headed down that path now, you should take a read of South Carolina politics writer Brad Warthen's insightful piece that Wilson's remarks have nothing to do with slavery, and everything to do with what got South Carolina into the Civil War: stubborn pride.

I'll believe it.

Hop over to his Web site to take a read.
