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?
