A very good Minnesota blog called The Cucking Stool has writers who have been documenting how Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer’s been sending out all sorts of coded signals to the folks who wished that the South had won and slavery was still legal. These posts have struck a nerve — and comedy gold — by engendering a hilariously disjointed set of desperately handwaving Tweets from local Republican functionary David “Thurmond” Strom, who apparently wants The Cucking Stool to stop pointing out this new wrinkle in the GOP’s Southern Strategy. Heh. Fat chance of that, buddy.
