221. Not sure where you're going with this,
but I'm so sick of people talking about "why we lost to Bush" when it comes to the basic integrity of the Democratic party. I could really care less if Confederate flag-worship is why(if) we lost to Bush. Hell, the Democrats can abandon gay rights, abortion, etc. and we'd probably win all over the place. But if we do that, what makes them better than the Republicans.

But this is totally off-topic. I was arguing that school had every right to kick this girl out of the dance, and that the Confederate flag is a purely racist symbol that is far-too-often meant to intimidate.

sheesh indeed.
