Being on the wrong side of two arguments, Rep. Lee Bright is one of history's biggest losers.

Today, the South Carolina state legislature voted 36-3 to remove the Confederate battle flag from capitol grounds. Bad news for Lee Bright, state representative from Spartansburg, SC, and upset daddy's boy. In the debate to remove the flag, Bright made a rambling plea to overturn gay marriages everywhere.

The debate to remove the flag began in the public after the horror of the shooting at the Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston last month. This is a very big symbolic achievement in ending a campaign of racial terror that has haunted our society for longer than we care to admit.
