    Seems he doesn't think that it's a good idea to honor the founder of the KKK.

    Oh, he's fucking stupid. There's a couple of big scandals in the statehouse which he's managed to completely mishandle. Both of them are tied to the Speaker of the House (a Republican, like the governor). The Chief of Staff for the Speaker ineptly tried to frame a reporter for violating a court order, and instead of firing him when that story broke, the Speaker made up some bullshit excuse why he was keeping him around. Then people started releasing texts and emails that the Chief of Staff had been sending, which were racist or were him admitting to sexually harassing women. That got him fired, but not before it came out that the Speaker had been handing out state jobs which paid six figures to people who weren't qualified to do them and never showed up to work. The governor was basically silent during all this time.

    Next, Rep. David Byrd admits that he sexually harassed high school girls (all under the age of 18) when he was their coach. (He's still a coach, BTW.) The Speaker's response to this was to put Rep. Byrd on an education subcommittee. After a few days of protests, Byrd was removed from the subcommittee but hasn't been ejected from the House. Again, the governor was basically silent during all of this.

    Some other things have come out about the Speaker (don't remember the details) and the governor has finally said that the Speaker needs to resign, which the Speaker has pledged to do, in a couple of months. (That's when he's eligible for retirement benefits from the state.) Meanwhile, the governor announced that Byrd would "be gone soon." When reporters asked Byrd if he was resigning, he said, "No." When reporters asked the governor WTF was going on, the governor said that he'd asked Byrd not to run for re-election and that Byrd had agreed not to. Can you guess what Byrd's response to that was?


    Bear in mind, that if the Speaker and Byrd were tossed out immediately it wouldn't shift the balance in the statehouse, even if their replacements were Democrats. So, there's absolutely no reason for the governor to not come out and say, "These two shitbags need to be gone yesterday." But he won't do that.

    Honoring Andrew Jackson makes sense as despite owning slaves he did a pretty good job as president.

    Lee. Not so much. He chose to fight for the wrong side and his "successes" prolonged the war and the pain and suffering it caused to both sides.

    Nathan Bedford Forrest shouldn't be honored based on either his war record or his post war activities.

    Yeah, they could take a step up and honor Pa Kitchens for his drunken debauchery that gave us you.

    I said a step up, slightly.

    No. This is just a Republican being a retard.

    He should refuse to do it and than say, "We won't be honoring Democrats for their actions during the Civil War."
