Bunning is leading charge to destroy modern history - CJ
Bunning is leading charge to destroy modern history
By Charles N. Davis - Special to The Courier-Journal - Friday, Dec. 14, 2007

If your holiday shopping this season finds you in a bookstore, take a moment and do me a favor.

Ask for the section on presidential history, and go take a peek. I'll hazard a guess you'll find literally hundreds of works of presidential history, from the scholarly tomes with hundreds of footnotes to the downright silly works on presidential pets.

Now, take a moment and imagine it's 2033, and you're looking for a nice downloadable e-book history of the Clinton or Bush presidencies.

What you find is truly disappointing: They look and feel like history, but sit down and read one for a moment, and the experience is wholly unsatisfying. Where is the background, the context provided by all of those once-classified memos detailing the West Wing intrigue that makes history truly come to life? Rather, we get the learned best guesses of the nation's finest historians working without their tools: the primary documents that make history, well, history.

3. He is completely certifiable.
Anyone in his district will remember his racist comments about his Italian-American opponent in 2004, his bizarre debate "counter offer"... and the list goes on.

Yet there he remains: a Senator and proven senile.

But then, Northern Kentucky went for Crook Fletcher in the recent gubernatorial election.
