Bainbridge awards McCain kudos

Bainbridge approvingly notes McCain not kowtowing to CSA "battle flag" sympathizers

I'll also note that the so-called "battle flag" flown by latter-day "states rights"/segregationists is NOT the actual Confederate battle flag, but is actually an anachronistic combination of the Confederate naval jack and the battle flag. The battle flag was square, not a rectangle. The naval jack used a light blue, not navy blue.

Navy Jack

Battle flag (J.E.B. Stuart's in this case)

What people fly these days out of ignorance
