What the hell?
 -- Mike, Bakersfield     
    To many liberals wonder, what the hell? This quote just shows the brilliance of President Lincoln. The true is and always will be, the truth.

    vern forgets abe was the ultimate liberal, as were republicans back then, antislavery, started income taxes, printed greenbacks with no backing. is vern a closet liberal in salt lake??
     -- zeth, salt lake     
    I agree with Mike. WTH??? Yeah...we know a tail is not a leg and that having a tail doesn't make the dog have 5 legs, but whats the point...the theme???

    LOL! Am I the only one here that gets Lincoln? Possibly. I suffer from the same disorder he had. "Melancholia" can certainly cause a person to see things differently. Lincoln's brand of liberalism is not at all what liberalism today. I always thought I was a liberal, I mean, for years I believed that. I was a hippie. Then I found out that today's so called "liberals" hijacked what I believed in. Gave the word liberal so much elasticity that I didn't recognize it. Now I'm known as a conservative, thank God.

    This is quote is great, especially for modern day Liberals or Progressives, just becuase "you" say so doesn't make it true!!!
