A New Idea for Certain Minds

So, you tell me, the Civil War’s been done to death, that there’s nothing new to say, and no new way to say it or see it.

Really? Well, here’s what someone’s done with the founding fathers … rendered them as pin-ups.

That’s right.

hamilton

I recall that someone once said that Hamilton had a well-turned leg or something like that.

However, this is my winner:

adams

I wonder whether George G. Meade, a man of similar temperament, ever posed like this.

    Think of the moral dilemma of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson as a pin-up. Wow.

    I’m speechless. I did, however, post the site on my Facebook page. I even gave you credit for making me aware of it.

    Meade? I am much more a fanboy of Ambrose Burnside. Wouldn’t it be just totally fab to see him do the Adams pose?

    I’m totally on board with all of this, so long as I never have to see Lincoln in a thong. I apologize for even connoting that mental picture, but I’m just begging you: please don’t ever post such an image where I might stumble across it. I’d have to give up this internet thing.

    John Adams like George Meade? Only if you mean they had both a reputation for being irritable. Adams is supposed to have had a depressive alcoholic temperament rather than the snappish, bird-on-a-wire mien usually attributed to Meade. But it’s a funny idea anyway.

    That’s not Adams. That’s Larry David trying to curb his enthusiasm. And no, it would not surprise me if has posed like this. Often.
