Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy during the Civil War, died at the age of 81 in 1889, still a hateful, mean, and totally incompetent sumbitch.
Once Lee surrendered, plans were made to move Jefferson Davis and his staff to Havana, Cuba. He tried to escape while wearing women’s clothing because that’s just the kind of guy he was. It didn’t work.
Although he was guilty of treason, he fled to Canada for a while after being ensconced in officer’s quarters with the family wasn’t good enough for him. After he returned he was offered the job of the first president of Texas A&M University but he turned it down. Probably because the job didn’t include slaves, or women’s clothes.
I have some mild sympathy for Robert E Lee because he was a decent man who faced up to his wrong doings. He took his punishment without whining and tried to help his beloved South recover.
You wanna know how much sympathy I have for Jefferson Davis?
The University of Texas will finally, oh thank you dear Lord, be moving the statue of Jefferson Davis off their campus.
It was the best thing that happened in Texas this weekend.
