opening the Bush library

Last week, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened in Dallas, with four former presidents and the current one in attendance. Everyone was very cordial. Today, I received this cartoon:

Perhaps the advance of history can be most easily marked by the latest willingness to make what was once illegal and heinous ordinary and acceptable. 
History will probably remember George W. Bush kindly, but from this closer vantage point, it makes me wonder why 'history' seems to blur the edges of all men and remember them "kindly." It makes me think that history is largely an ego trip.
