Knuckle Dragging

Here's another link from National Review that has an outstanding quote that our modern day journalist should pay attention to, well you know, if they had not already become unhinged from reality that is.
Oh, yeah, I had another point too: As I've mentioned before, Lincoln was constantly insulted in primatological terms. They called him a gorilla and "the Illinois ape"; they depicted him as hairy and stooped over, his knuckles dragging on the ground.

Indeed, Lincoln and Bush are two presidents who have a lot in common. We had an unusual Impromptus about that — remember? — last summer, based on the cherished 1952 biography by Benjamin P. Thomas. Here 'tis.

And do you remember this one? After a Lincoln speech, a Democratic editor in Chicago wrote the following: "The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat, and dishwatery utterances of the man who has to be pointed out to intelligent foreigners as the President of the United States."

That speech, my friends, was the Gettysburg Address.
You can quote me on this one: Bush will make our journalist look just as petty and stupid as that Chicago editor.

Bwa ha ha ha ha ha....

Hat tip to Sean.
