The irony of all this is that -- all things equal -- you'd think that conservatives would be more concerned with a fidelity to true historic fact, if for no other reason than their ideological tendency to look backward for guidance as to how to move forward.

Unfortunately, instead of insisting upon our country learning from its past mistakes, conservatives seem intent upon having Americans make mistakes in what they learn. And in this frighteningly divided political climate over which the first black president presides, knowing ones history may be important if only so that we don't let ourselves repeat it.
