A third of NC's Republicans wish the South had won Civil War

33 percent of the GOP in North Carolina actually wishes the South had won the Civil War. I think it’s fair to say that in nearly any other country, if a full third of a major party’s members said they sided with the losing, rebel faction in that country’s previous civil war — not to mention implying that they are in favor of slavery — that party would be, to put it very, very mildly, discredited. But here? We’re so used to goobers having a say in how things are run — N.C. House Majority Leader Skip Stam, anyone? — it’s a one-day blog item that quickly sinks from public view.
I wish I could say I was surprised.
