WASHINGTON: The tolerant, coexist-bumper-sticker set have found their latest victim. Nikki Haley stated in a recent interview that people in South Carolina see the Confederate flag as service, sacrifice, and heritage. That statement started mouths foaming, condescension flowing and noses upturning.
