-- Lincoln was a learned man, but he was earthy, too. He drew on deep learning and applied it widely. He talks in parables and finds a story to illustrate just about every situation and strategy. --
Further evidence that hawkish Neo-cons like Mrs. Fields and others idolize Lincoln to the point of worship. "He talks in parables"? Is he being elevated to the same status as Jesus, all of a sudden?
Once again, the Neo-cons show just how close they are to their Progressive brethren, who also idolize Lincoln's love for power and big government. Arguably, Abe was the first in an ignoble series of Fascist presidents that stomped on the Constitution and our rights, for instance: Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Johnson, Nixon, etc.
