Confederacy of Dunces

When it comes to Civil War history, Virginia's governor get's a D. Before being called out by ... well, just about everyone, Bob McDonnell declared April Confederate History Month, which, for him was (no surprise) all about state's rights.  After heavy criticism, he changed his tune and added a paragraph on the role slavery played in the causes of the war. How magnanimous.

Wait, isn't he the executive of a state whose legislature issued a formal apology for slavery? Way to go.
