4th of july

In honor of the Fourth of July, here's Abraham Lincoln.

Fun Facts about Abraham Lincoln:

--Successfully led the country through its greatest constitutional, military and moral crisis—the American Civil War--by preserving the Union by force while ending slavery and promoting economic modernization.

--Issued his Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and promoted the passage of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, abolishing slavery.

--Preferred to honor-duel with swords and axes, as his long reach and natural strength gave him considerable advantage.

This picture of Lincoln looks upon my very sould and finds it wanting.

Ahem, soul, is what I meant. Sould is very rare chinese fish that explodes when attacked by its enemies.

Yeah, Lincoln would probably look at us and say "Wait a minute, I held the Union together for THESE dipshits??!"

Or more probably he would point up in the sky and shout "Eee-ah! Iron bird!"

(Thanks, Dave Letterman.)

Sorry, Mr Zachary "Old Rough and Ready/ President For Only Sixteen Months Before Dying of Acute Gastroenteritis" Taylor, I may get around to you eventually. As in, maybe before I die.

(I love the fact that the Wikipedia page for Taylor has the notation "For the Power Rangers character, see Zack Taylor")

I think so far my list of drawn Presidents is Lincoln, Washington, Nixon, John Adams, Jefferson, Taft, and Obama.

They would certainly make an interesting superhero group.
