Reality vs. Fiction

Ben "Cooter" Davis played a television character who drove the backroads in a pickup truck he named the General Lee; he is holding a fundraiser for Jim Webb.

Well, conservative wingnuts are all up in arms. SWAC Girl decries: "

The General Lee, don't ya know, has a CONFEDERATE FLAG ON ITS ROOF.


Where's the outrage? Where's the indignation? Where's the call for Webb's resignation?

My dear child, do you not see the obvious difference between the made-up character of Cooter and the real McCoy, sort've speak, in the form of Sen. George Felix Macacawitz who draped himself with the Confederate flag?!?

Here's a few definitions that hopefully will make the point clear for you.

Reality - something that exists independently of all other things and from which all other things derive; something that is real.

Real - existing or occurring as fact; actual rather than imaginary, ideal, or fictitious.

Fiction - something feigned, invented, or imagined; a made-up story; an
imaginary thing or event.W

Wait...holy batwings! Guess next time there is a crime scene, you better get on the batmobile and call Val Kilmer, for sure.

Update for the intentionally clueless: Ben "Cooter" Davis drove around the General Lee because that's what the character he played in "Dukes of Hazard" did; and he hoped it might trigger voters' memories at the polls. If Leonard Nimoy of "Star Trek" opted to run for public office, so what if he decided to don some Spock ears while campaining to cement his "brand"? On the other hand, Allen has absolutely no past ties to Dixie, that is, other than in his imaginary racist mind.
