Ask yourself... WWPD

I feel silly even broaching this subject because Presidents Day has become so pervasive in our culture, but let me be among the many today to ponder "What Would Polk Do?"

Yes, we've taken one day and used it to combine the nearly four dozen men who have served as President of the United States. Well, that and celebrate 10 percent off furniture.

How will you mark the day? We're doing the usual... a party where you come dressed as your favorite period from the early career of Chester A. Arthur! But please, when hanging decorations that commemorate the achievements of the William Henry Harrison administration. Wheee!

Of course, as you're listening to James Buchanan songs on your local radio station, try to remember some guys like Lincoln and Washington too, they used to have holidays some time around now.

PS, James Buchanan was queer. It's true, look it up.
