Apparently Howard Dean wasn't too clear about how he wanted to be the candidate of the Confederate flagwearer. Peter Robinson
at The Corner reports from an AP wire:
A group of students who attended Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean's appearance at Dartmouth College on Thursday unveiled Confederate flags as he was introduced.
The group of about nine students, whom fellow students and Dean campaign staffers identified as conservative activists, did not otherwise disrupt the former Vermont governor's speech about paying for higher education.
How did they know these students were "conservative activists"? Oh, right. The New York Post
notes the nine students without identifying them as conservative activists.
Another report indicates that someone put up spoof ads for Dean's talk, printed on a Confederate flag background. Dartlog has link- and picture-rich coverage well worth visiting.
