Whilst cruising the news regarding the recent "60 minutes" broadcast on Don Siegelman I stumbled upon this story..the 200 birthday of Jefferson'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

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.
