    That is Stan Musial was also awarded the PMOF, someting I and all of St. Louis was hoping Barack would do before it was too late. We probably won't have him among us much longer. It's Stan's 90th birthday today. I love the man, a great American and even finer human being. That he has to stand next to GHWB to get it is sad. What did he do besides cover up for himself and Saint Ronnie? Barack's political motivation is so transparent. More pandering to his not base.

    Great diary BB, as always. Keep holding them to the fire and we'll keep reading. Sheriff Dart is a brave and honest man. We need so many more...

    •  A dangerous calculation (5+ / 0-)

      There will be a photograph of President Obama awarding G.W. Bush the Presidential Medal of Freedom. We will see Mr. Obama behind G. W. Bush, putting the medal around his neck. Almost certainly they will both be smiling.
      This photograph will go all over the internet, and, well, everywhere.
      It's message to independents and like-minded Republicans? That no matter what they've read, all things are right in their world, nothing to see here, not to worry.
      It's message to Progressives?
      That we don't count, after all.
      This is a dangerous calculation. While we may be a minority, we are a creative, intellectual minority. Aroused, our impact on the national imagination is substantial.
      That photograph will have consequences.
      When the echoes of the speeches are still, when all the protests duly noted, that photograph will remain, and voice what words alone cannot.
