23. No comparison.
Sister Souljah was an easy target, honestly: she'd said so many inflammatory, indefensible things that criticizing her was as safe as saying "8 Simple Rules is cynically milking John Ritter's death for ratings". Obvious.

Talking about the confederate flag, on the other hand, not so obvious. It's been said before: all most people are gonna get from this is "Dean is somehow associated with the confederate flag," because they're not gonna look into it real deep. That's not good for Dean. All press is not good press.

So, the sound bites: "Clinton dissed some militant black lady" vs. "Dean likes the confederate flag or something".

Neither sound bite is true, of course; I'm saying this is what I'm afraid the mainstream will hear.
