Presidents' Week

I'm not sure when it happened, but some time ago we went from celebating Lincoln's birthday and Washington's birthday separately to celebrating one holiday nebulously entitled "Presidents' Day." This way, in addition to Lincoln and Washington, we also get to honor people like Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

This is Presidents' Week. As such, you will get two things. The first, is a lot of advertisements for car dealerships with men dressed as Lincoln and Washington telling you about an incredible low price at Jackass Cheverolet.

The second will be a series on some of America's crappiest presidents. This, you will get from me throughout the coming week. We will look at some of the men who have occupied the nation's highest office and hopefully it will make you wonder why we celebrate them, and wish we would just go back to the old Lincoln & Washington mode.

Sit back and enjoy...
