The South Shall Rise Again

"Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell on Tuesday signed a proclamation that re-instituted April as Confederate History Month for the first time in the Cradle of the Confederacy since 2001."

The past should be remembered but is this an appropriate way to do so? I think it's just conservative right wing kooks appealing to the crazy fringe of their base. Opinions?

I think this Governor suffers from the same dilema the Teabaggers suffer. They have to look for something to scream about, even if the issue is not worth the effort, due to the fact that they do not have the guts to scream about what is actually bothering them. What is it? The fact that our President is black. I agree that this proclamation is a pitiful gesture to those same ignorant lunatics.

Agreed. There is definitely an undercurrent of racism coming from the 'baggers which, I believe, isn't reported enough by the "liberal" media.
