    in that instance, but the whole plantation wedding thing was tone deaf and downright creepy, to out it as mildly as one can.

    •  But she isn't tone deaf, that's the problem (2+ / 0-)

      She knows that if the media had gotten wind of her Return to the Glorious Days of the Confederacy themed wedding, she would be pilloried. She said so.

      So she KNOWS that what she's talking about is offensive and yet went there anyway.

      Personally, I was over her the second it was revealed that she had had Type II diabetes for three years and had continued shilling her horrible "screw you I eat what I want" diet until the magical moment she got in bed with Big Pharma.

      But if this stops a few powerful closet bigots from acting like this when only the powerless are witness, then that's a good thing.

      •  I agree, but again, she was testifying under oath (0+ / 0-)

        so she did not have much way not to revisit the issue.
