57 Days And Presidents Day

With 57 days to go we are celebrating Presidents Day in the U.S.  Originally intended to celebrate the first President of the United States, George Washington, it has become more of a celebration of the 44 men who managed to be President over the past couple of hundred years.  Lincoln has a birthday in February as well.

I was watching some of the television ads that use Ben Franklin, Abe Lincoln and George Washington and while they can be funny I have to ask what kind of person thought of using founding fathers and past Presidents as actors in commercials?  Can you disrespect someone any more than sticking their likeness in a commercial for something they didn't even have when they were alive.
