Lincoln Was A Democrat

Wow, you learn something every day. Shouldn't there be an accompanying interpretive plaque, or maybe this should be taken down and placed in a museum so it could be "properly interpreted in context" by experts. More here.

Al Gore is cursing that he ever invented the Internet! Otherwise the unwashed masses would not know that Lincoln was a Republican.

Lurkers welcome.

Maybe this plaque was made by the same guy who painted the end zone of the Chefs?

"Chefs" is more politically correct.

Revisionist history--again.

The linked article explains some of the possible reasons. The excuse is somewhat plausible, but I don't buy it.

Sure, Abraham Lincoln was a Democrat, OJ didn't do it, Bill Clinton didn't have sexual relations with that woman, Fast-n-Furious was a botched attempt to track Mexican drug smugglers, and the attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a video tape. No doubt about it. Nosiree!

BTW, anyone know what the meaning of is is?

If the Democrat Party wants to claim Abraham Lincoln, then I for one say take him! I don't want him, you can have him, he's too totalitarian for me.

However, quid pro quo, I want Thomas Jefferson - Republican in exchange.

Jefferson's my kinda guy, a true and faithful son of the Old Dominion, a proponent of individual liberty, strongly in favor of state's rights, willing to fight for free trade and sailor's rights, and an implacable opponent of an ever expanding federal government.

Yep, I'll take that deal, any time.

TJ is ok with me, though I actually prefer Patrick Henry.
