GOP prez hopeful Barbour finally agrees to veto KKK license plates

How long did it take for him to realize that this was offensive and completely wrong? Even now he can’t bring himself to say anything bad about the KKK leader who massacred African-American Union troops during the Civil War. Why did this take so long?

Mississippi GOP Gov. Haley Barbour on Monday issued his strongest language yet on a state license plate honoring a Ku Klux Klan leader, telling the Associated Press he would not sign the proposal if it reached his desk.

“I said accurately this is not going to happen,” the Republican said in an interview. “The bureaucracy denied it, the legislature won’t pass it and if the legislature passes it, it won’t become law because I won’t sign it.”
