    I don't think Barbour has the "citizen council" mentality now, but what he's trying to do is "whitewash" the history, which is consistent with a broadbased, Orwellian rewriting of history by Fox News, by elements of the Texas State Board of Education, Gov. McDonnell of VA, etc.

    At the same time, he's issuing a coded message to the current crop of racists in the tea party, etc. Of tolerance, of encouragement.
    Dog-whistle.

    The good news about this whole event is that duplicitous, coded message that we heard throughout the past two years has suddenly been stripped bare, and we're reminded of the real history. So hopefully Barbour will not crawl back into the woodwork but will be hung out to dry and Demint, McDonnell,Perry etc. can be effectively and justifiably smeared with that taint. This keeps them on the defensive, rather than able to drive the media narrative with their hooey.
