Hear the voices
The chorus all in one place (let me know if I missed any):
Krugman: Flags versus Dollars
Civil rights attorney Constance L. Rice: Stand Firm, Howard Dean
William Saletan: The New Bum Rap on Howard Dean
John Nichols: Rebel flag flap shows media failure
Open Source Politics: Playing the Race Card
Joan Walsh: Confederacy of Dunces
Derrick Jackson in the Boston Globe: Dean's appeal to South cuts across race
The American Prospect: Pickup Line
Susanna Rodell in the Charleston Gazette: Dean’s Confederate-flag remarks politically risky, but true
And some stuff as much about Zell Miller as about Howard Dean:
Jay Bookman in the AJC: Miller wears the crown of King Sneer
(Also see the transcript of the online chat Bookman had with AJC readers following his column: Transcript from 11/6/03)
David Worley's open letter to Zellout Miller in the AJC.
Some of these stories require user name/password. Just use "salon" and "tabletalk".
