When I first read a Twitter post from Yvonne Wenger of The Post and Courier that Sen. Robert Ford was waving a Confederate flag on the floor of the state Senate, I was simultaneously shocked and not shocked at the same time. Ford has a way of turning any venue into a three-ring circus, but each time he climbs out of the clown car of buffoonery that is his mind he manages to astonish us.

Be sure to follow Wenger and Sellers on Twitter for up-to-the-minute updates.

Wenger now has a report up at the P&C.
