Jenny Horne's tearful speech against Confederate flag - CNN.com(CNN)When Jenny Horne stepped up to the podium to address South Carolina's House of Representatives, her first words let on that she was fed up. Just not how fed up.
Of the words stirred by passion in Wednesday's debate that eventually led lawmakers to vote to remove the Confederate battle flag from the statehouse grounds, hers would burn themselves into memory.
Horne started out with a calm complaint.
"We are going to be doing this all summer long," she said, after stepping up to the microphone, referring to a stream of amendments that the flag's supporters were adding to the bill and effectively delaying a vote.

Right on Jenny. Nailed it!
