Yeah, but a lot of people don't know this fact. The average person would just say that it's the Confederated flag.

And I spelled it "confederation" for the flag and "Thrummond" for the senator. Also "storm" wasn't acceptable for the hurricane question. They are storms!

I second this. While his background is a stint in the South Carolina state senate, he is known at the beginning of the series as the House Majority Whip.

If you were an Alabama fan you'd remember their song, "Dancin', Shaggin' on the Boulevard." They played a lot of clubs in Myrtle Beach. (Apologies to my British friends who have a somewhat different definition of shag.)
