Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

03/08/2005: Get Over It!


Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) explains why the South Carolina GOP doesn't host Lincoln Day dinners:

We dont do Lincoln Day Dinners in South Carolina, Senator Graham told a Lincoln Day gathering in Tennessee Saturday. Its nothing personal, but it takes awhile to get over things.

Speaking as a Southerner with at least two great-great grandfathers (Cpl. Reuben Dollar, 5 MS Infantry; and Cpl. Stephen McCraw, 8 AL Cavalry) who fought in the Civil War on the Confederate side, I have this to say to Sen. Graham and his fellow SC GOPers: It's been 140 years since Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox. The South lost the Civil War, and it's a damn good thing it did. Get over it!
