Why?

Why would Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell omit a reference to slavery in proclaiming April as Confederate History Month? But more significant (in my view), why did McDonnell resurrect the month in the first place?? It had been eight years since a month had been so designated.

It shouldn't be a problem to study the Confederacy -- let alone acknowledge it. But since slavery was a huge part of the nascent-yet-never-fully realized nation, doing so has to be done delicately. And McDonnell bungled this whole matter like a rank amateur.

He deserves to be blasted for it.
