I know it’s Mississippi, but posing for pictures wearing a CSA cap and carrying a CSA rifle while at the home/library/museum of traitor and noted slave-economy enthusiast Jefferson Davis seems like an odd thing for a candidate (or would-be candidate: it was in 2014) to do, but I suppose Mississippi is an odd place.
Anyway, in related news, Hyde-Smith non-apologized for her previous lynching-enthusiasm comment:
“‘My comments [did not] mean I would enjoy any type of capital punishment sitting there witnessing this. You know, for anyone that was offended by my comments, I certainly apologize. There was no ill will, no intent whatsoever in my statements,’ she said. But Hyde-Smith added, ‘This comment was twisted and it was turned into a weapon to be used against me. A political weapon used for nothing but personal and political gain by my opponent,’ Hyde-Smith said.”
