Happy Presidents' Day

Though I'm not terribly happy with some of our presidents and would-be's lately. It used to be the unwritten code that ex-presidents don't bad-mouth a sitting president. Of course, we all knew those days were over even before Coretta Scott King's funeral. It used to be considered bad form to go to another country and bad-mouth our country. Clinton called Iraq a "big mistake" while in Dubai, of all places. And now former presidential hopeful-turned-nutjob Al Gore decides to tell Arabs that we're mistreating them -- to an audience in Saudi Arabia -- the place where 15 of the 19 hijackers of 9-11 came from!

Is there a way to exclude them from the celebrations of this day?

Thanks elijah! I love her but her politics have seeped into her songs of late...she's gone a bit nutty, don't you think? But those first three CDs were awesome! I saw her concert a few times...she's fabulous. Thanks for coming by!

Hey esther, we can always remember George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Clinton is almost as bad as Carter anymore. But hey there's Teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Jefferson!

It is grammatically incorrect (via vocabulary definitions) to use the predicate "a good President" after the subject name of any Democrat without seperating the subject and predicate with the words "was not."

For a short while, I was fooled into believing that Jimmy Carter was turning into a great American spokesman and a great ex-President. I have been proven wrong...repeatedly.
Even the black spokesman's at the funeral treated President Bush with more respect.
