Happy Washington's Birthday

Celebrating our first President's birthday goes back to well before it became an official holiday. The current trend toward renaming today as 'Presidents Day' is abhorrent and should be decried at every opportunity...as if the likes of a James Buchanan or a Jimmy Carter are at all deserving to be honored alongside the Great George Washington. I'm not a big fan of honoring individuals with named holidays (when and with whom does it end?) but if anyone is deserving of such an honor...

Comments:
You picked the same two losers I originally picked to illustrate the same point, only I changed Buchanan to Harding, because I figured more people would know about him.
 
great minds think alike
