I bet there are some interesting conversations that happen in this house...

An actual picture taken by a reporter of a house in Martinsville Indiana and featured on Ben Smith's blog at the Politico which shows a house flying a Confederate Battle flag but also sporting an Obama for President sign. Something tells me these folks are not converts due to "The Great Schlep"... (youtube video here) LOL!


Just goes to show that race is a very multi-faceted issue in this country.

Ahhh what a wonderful multi-colored hue this America is!

That is pretty funny. I'm sure they have no problem rationalizing both the Confederate Flag and the Obama vote.

I get it. Just your run of the mill Southern Liberals.

They're probably just fans on The Dukes of Hazzard.

I also like the cross hanging on the shed? in the left background. These people got it covered!

I've had many people tell me that the Confederate Flag is not about racism.That may be the case. I'm glad to see they got the American Flag on top.

I watched the Great Schlep video right now and some reactions to it. Pretty freaking amazing is all I can say.

Okay, not to start anything, but a lot of people really don't think the confederate flag is about racism...I think it's become that way...and I, personally, out of respect for that connotation wouldn't display it...but, anyway...rambling...at least they are voting for obama! YAY!
