GA Senate panel OKs "Confederate History Month"

From the Associated Press via Yahoo!News: Ga. Senate panel OKs Confederate month
ATLANTA - A panel of Georgia lawmakers signed off Thursday on a plan to create a Confederate heritage month, even as legislative leaders reacted coolly to a push to apologize for the state's role in slavery.

Sen. Jeff Mullis' bill would dub April as Confederate History and Heritage Month to honor the memory of the Confederacy and "all those millions of its citizens of various races and ethnic groups and religions who contributed in sundry and myriad ways to the cause of Southern Independence."

It's kind of hard to come up with a good comment for this. I mean, really, how stupid is this? Seriously, you guys lost, get over it.

Why in hell do they need this? The Confederacy was a failure on every level. It was established under a pretense of "rights" that had little to do with rights; it was a venture that was, in essence, an act of treason; and its legacy is a shame to our whole nation - Jim Crow laws, the KKK, staunch opposition to civil rights, and a pattern of mistrust and ignorance in the South that lasts to this very day.

You want to teach that kind of history? Teach what was wrong with it. Oh, wait, we do that already, when we teach about the Civil War.
