Schumer and Booker are engaging in election year theater. New York and New Jersey are trying to decide for every other state which statues go and which stay.They know that won't fly, but they also know that the deadheads in the media can be told how to spin it.

Maybe a compromise is in order. Keep statues of really bad Confederate generals, whose efforts often led more directly to Union victories than those of the Union's own mostly incompetent general officers. John Bell Hood and Braxton Bragg comes to mind, as well as the Confederacy's President, Jefferson Davis. Thanks for the help, fellas!
