Thanks to The Iconoclast for noting the convergence of a John McCain trip to Northwest Arkansas on Friday amidst a Bentonville celebration of the 100th anniversary of the city's statue paying tribute to Confederate veterans. The snarky 'clast notes that McCain didn't attend the dedication ceremony in 1908. No word if a Miss Confederate bikini-wearing, banana-eating contest is planned in which the candidate's wife can participate.
