Tradition, Not Treason!

Gov. Bob McDonnell has quietly declared April 2010 Confederate History Month, bringing back a designation in Virginia that his two Democratic predecessors—Mark Warner and Tim Kaine—refused to do.

I would like to propose that January 14th hereby be recognized as a day of celebration of the birth of the great American general who bravely lead the colonial troops to victories in the battles of Ticonderoga and Saratoga, among others. Let all Americans tip their hats in honor of the legendary Colonial hero, Benedict Arnold.

We could dress up in period costumes and pretend to sell military secrets to enemy spies. West Point could hold a big annual pageant, celebrating his failed plot to hand the fort over to the British for £20,000. Don your tri-corners and enjoy some Treason Fries !

Who's with me ?

    just think Rob: if the British had won, we’d all be speaking English now! (proper British English, that is)

    where ‘fanny’ didn’t mean ‘ass’, and ‘shag’ didn’t mean ‘a dance performed by old people at beach parties’

    And fag meant cigarette – “just popping out to smoke a fag” would probably get you killed in Texas. :)
