Yee Haw!

Cross Posted From: Article of Faith:

Check out my United States Senator, Georgia Republican Saxby Chambliss and this latest gem via Raw Story:

At a closed door meeting of the Armed Services Committee, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) said that with better intelligence the South would have won the Civil War, today’s Roll Call is reporting.

According to Roll Call’s source, Chambliss said, “We need better intelligence. If we had better intelligence in the Civil War we’d be quoting Jefferson Davis, not Lincoln.”

LOL. “Fergit, hell”, as they say in the south.

  1. LOL! A true redneck in a red state! Let me guess, he must also think that Gen. Lee was all that and a bag of chips too. Well hate to do the unmentionable, but here it goes: Gen. Lee was the reason for the lost! There, this southern man said it!! And evoking the name of Davis too, WTF?

  2. Donnie, we don’t call him Saxby *Shameless* for nothin’. ;>

    I read a tactics article a long time ago that stated the reason the South lost the civil war is because Stonewall Jackson was killed.
    Jackson would have been on the left flank at Gettysburg and would have taken Culp’s Hill collapsing the Union lines.
    Instead Lee split Jackson’s Core into two Cores and gave them to Dick Ewell, who just recovered from the loss of a leg, an Ambrose Hill who was not much of a commander.
    As it was, it was a narrow victory for the North.
    Because Ewell and Hill were slow, the North built superb defenses and used a flooded marsh to stop the attack.
    Hunt got reinforcements and Chamberlain won the battle at Little Round Top.
    Picket never had a chance as Confederate artillery fuses burned too slowly allowing their covering fire to overshoot the union lines.
    The Union forces were behind protected fences and mowed them down.
    It is an interesting what if?

    Actually, if the south had won, England and France were waiting to ‘recolonize’ the divided states – had an agreement about which country would get what states and territories.

    So, the southerners would be speaking French. Or maybe we would all have ended up speaking German. Or maybe…

    This is why the Federation came up with “The Prime Directive”…
