Lincoln is one of my favorite political figures of any time or place and while I have many works dealing with the man this is not one of them. I shall have to place it high on my reading list. It is amazing to me how many politicians attempt to appear Lincolnesque. Without having the chops to do so. Perhaps the latest and lamest was Santorum's little napkin/paper towel rant in regard to gay marriage. It was clearly intended to invoke a common rubric employed by Lincoln at various times to the effect that calling a calf's tail a leg did not make it so. I expect Santorum was hoping someone would notice the similarity of the wisdom and compare him favorably to Lincoln. Not much chance of that I dare say.
