Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Beast says the Confederacy is back if Romney wins Virginia and Florida. More like the Obama empire is over. George Will calls him out by saying it is ludicrous to think that somehow the white voters who voted for Obama in 2008 are racist if they vote against him in 2012.
If you think comparing Mitt Romney’s supporters in the American South to the Civil War’s Confederacy would be irresponsible and racially suggestive, Daily Beast “Daily Dish” blogger Andrew Sullivan apparently disagrees with you.
“If Virginia and Florida go back to the Republicans, it’s the Confederacy, entirely,” Sullivan declared on this weekend’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”
“You put a map of the Civil War over this electoral map, you’ve got the Civil War,” he added.
