Whilst cruising the news regarding the recent "60 minutes" broadcast on Don Siegelman I stumbled upon this story..the 200 birthday of Jefferson Davis...you'all remember the Civil War. Take a moment and follow me....see if this travel into history doesn't remind you of our current president's attitude!
Celebration of Jefferson Davis bicentennial muted
excerpt:

Last week, President Bush himself helped kick off a two-year celebration of the Great Emancipator's Feb. 12, 2009, bicentennial that will include dozens of events in Kentucky, Illinois, Washington and beyond.

It's that other tall, log cabin-born Kentuckian, Jefferson Davis, whose 200th has turned out to be something of a lost cause.
