Last week I mentioned to my wife that the Republican Party has been taken over by those still fighting the Civil War. Imagine my surprise and delight when I say Harry Welty's latest snow sculpture - an elephant holding a Confederate flag in its trunk. Harry also wrote a blog entry about the Southern takeover of the Republican Party.
Harry Welty is a local, maverick, wannabe politician. He was a Republican Party member for a long time, but his independent mindset couldn't take the dogmatism any longer. He now calls himself a Lincoln Democrat.
