Andy Taggart, a longtime Republican establishment hack, is urging the Mississippi GOP to pass resolutions calling for a new state flag, since it “represents” the darkest days in our state’s history:
“The … flag itself is highly polarizing, … Arguments that Confederate monuments and the like will be the next to fall if we change the flag don’t wash.”[our italics]
Is Taggart serious? The answer, quite obviously, is, “not in the least.” Maybe Taggart missed the closing of a Civil War museum in Georgia of all places. They’ve clearly forgotten Sherman’s March.
Andy Taggart is one of Haley Barbour’s boys. He supported Thad Cochran against Chris McDaniel, and co-chaired John Kasich’s presidential campaign in Mississippi. He even predicted that Trump would lose to Hillary Clinton and the Senate would go to the Democrats.
Thanks for the advice Andy, but we’ll pass on heeding your advice on what’s “polarizing.”
