an update on the white South Carolina conservatives

I was right in the first place (yay, me!). That's a Union uniform:
McConnell, a Charleston Republican, said the uniform he’s wearing in the picture is the same uniform he wore in a movie about the Hunley, in which he had a nonspeaking role. He also points out he is not wearing a Confederate uniform, but a Union uniform that the hosts asked him to wear.

  1. So the internet outrage was about a southern politician celebrating history by wearing a Union uniform and thus showing how racist he is. *rolls eyes*

    And they don't understand why people get a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" attitude about these things.

    (Which isn't to say that McConnell isn't racist. I know jack shit about McConnell.)
