Iconology

ICONOLOGY….Jonah Goldberg gives us the inside track on Republican thinking about the Confederate flag today:

If [Howard] Dean had studied the Republican line more closely, he’d know that Republicans don’t embrace the flag because it is racist ? or at least they never, ever, say that ? but explicitly because it represents things other than race: heritage, pride, honor, etc.

No, they never, ever, say that, do they? Care to revise and extend, Jonah?
