Mulligan: Haley Barbour would look great in a Viking helmet
Careful, Haley. Your hometown is only one letter away from being Yahoo City.
Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a prospective presidential candidate and a fine product of Yazoo City, Miss., tells the Weekly Standard that the white supremacist Citizens Council was an upstanding "organization of town leaders" in Yazoo that encouraged the peaceful integration of schools. As if on cue, a modern successor to the Citizens Councils, the Council of Conservative Citizens, is calling for a boycott of the movie Thor, because the Norse god is played by Idris Elba, a black man.
In fairness, Thor did not look like Elba. Thor looked like Haley Barbour at an Ole Miss frat party.
