Haley Barbour 2016

Apparently Mississippi “forgot” to ratify the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery. Or, more accurately, they “lost the paperwork” when the Legislature finally got around to ratifying it in … wait for it … 1995.

Riiiiight.

Thanks to Steven Spielberg and the movie “Lincoln,” this oversight was brought to the attention of the Mississippi Secretary of State’s office and it has now been fixed.

Which can only mean one thing: Haley Barbour is running for president!

    I remember it being 1995 thanks to Michael Moore, who sent a black reporter to get in under the wire the week before they ratified the amendment. Said reporter “bought” hunky white guys, and paraded them shirtless, in chains, around the capital.

    In about 20 years we’ve gone from that segment being on NBC, in primetime, to wherever we are now. It’s our loss.

    By ratifying the 13th, Mississippi has lost the redneck vote.
