Stupid White Man of the Week: Senator Glenn McConnell

Yes, that is in fact the President of the South Carolina State Senate, dressed up as a Confederate officer, along with two African Americans dressed as slaves.  By way of explanation, “General” McConnell says we should all “receive it in the spirit that it is presented.” Fine.  I “receive it” that you are, at best, a historically brain-dead douchebag incapable of understanding that prancing around in Civil War attire with “darkies” might– just MIGHT– be a tad offensive to some folk.  At worst, you are a racist shitheel.  What is it exactly with Republicans who want to play Confederate dress-up anyway?
