Thought for the Day

The "party of Lincoln" is celebrating the Confederacy.


  • See, I get a "Southern History Month," but paying honor to and celebrating the Confederacy is like having a Timothy McVeigh Day. Or maybe a John Wilkes Booth Day. No?

  • I don't know. It just struck me as soooo funny that "the party of Lincoln" would celebrate his enemy.

  • Yeah, I get it. But that party has morphed away from Lincoln in the same way right-wing christians have morphed away from Jesus. The GOP celebrates Lincoln's enemies, and the right-wing christians celebrate wealth over compassion.

  • Right. It's such a ridiculous externsion. That's why it's so damn funny to me.

    The "party of Lincoln" cloak is so transparently thin and yet they cite it with such seriousness because it's the only real claim to non-racism that they have.
