Getting Wrong With Lincoln (part 2)

Politicians love to quote Abraham Lincoln or cite him in support for something they’ve decided to do.

But sometimes it doesn’t work.

Well, at least that’s just a bad slip of the tongue. At least it wasn’t this.

    Poor Harry, his best days are behind him. A person in his position should be able to quote that particular Lincoln statement from memory he could not even read it properly.
    I would like to propose a new amendment to the constitution:
    In order to be deemed eligible to serve in a Federal elective office a person shall be required to pass a basic American History exam of the high school level.

      Bob: There would be perhaps 7 seats filled in the House and 4 in the Senate. Not a bad idea, actually…

        The only problem is that an amendment has to pass Congress before it goers to the States.
        Someone should relay this to Trump.

          Sorry about the goers I meant to write goes, I should proof read before I hit the comment.

    My favorite Lincoln quote of all time: “You can’t believe everything you read on the internet.”

    I lost all respect for Reid after that “Negro dialect” comment.

    “This is why you’re Harry Reid”. Dumb as a flagstone.
