In happier times

This has been a rough week, but I just saw something on the Tennessee Guerilla Women's blog that cheered me up.



What an incredible experience. I can still remember how it felt to wear the uniform in those extremely vivid surroundings. "Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights, hurrah!" I swear, we must have had to do a hundred takes of that scene, with that song on repeat the whole time--but I never grew tired of it. I think I was just born too late, that's all there is to it.

How about that noose in yer office, Senator? Do you wish the south looked like it did when you were playing dress up? Did it make you...happy playing dressup? We are in a war, sir. Billions of dollars are being mis-spent in Iraq, on Katrina, look at the drug bill you all passed that's close to a trillion dollars of new spending. Pay attention, sir. We're in a war. A few wars, really. Osama bin forgotten, though, but we're still fighting in Afghanistan. Iraq is $300 billion, but we got the Paris Hilton estate tax cut passed. GOOD JOB, SIR!

Not to carp on inconsistencies or anything, but... In the macaca clip (and on your own website), you said you were no friend to the Hollywood moguls. I think you're right to stay clear of them -- they're all either Jewish or gay or both -- but how do you reconcile those statements with your appearance in the Gods and Generals film? Even if it was for a good cause, I think you should apologise to your voters for that breach of faith.
Sincerely,
VABelle

Vabelle,

That's a good question, and I addressed it in my official Statement on Cameo Role as Confederate Officer.

Stay the course,

Thank you, Sir, for the reference; I'm afraid I'd forgotten your statement about not having spoken to any of the Hollywood Moguls during the filming.

I think you look great in the confederate uniform, though it's a pity the hat is black; it sort-of offers the wrong connotations.

Also... I was told -- by my husband, a Virginian born and bred -- that, during the War Between the States, the South, while rich in courage and dedication was cash-poor. That meant that most of those fighting on our side didn't even have proper uniforms.

I haven't seen the whole film (don't like to look at unpleasant pictures), so I don't know what role you played in it. You must have been at least a general yourself, since you do wear a proper uniform.
