Late last month, when I wrote a column entitled "Abe and Mary Todd Obama," I speculated about how many Lincoln references Barabraham Lincobama (the politician formerly knows as Barack Obama) would force into his inauguration. In a drastic oversight, I forgot about one possibility: the meal:
On Inauguration Day, not only will President-elect Obama be sworn in using the Bible that was used to swear in President Abraham Lincoln, he will dine like Lincoln as well.
The luncheon that will be served in Congress's Statuary Hall to the president-elect and vice president-elect and their families - as well as congressional leaders, justices of the Supreme Court and pending members of the Obama Cabinet - will be modeled after foods that Lincoln ate and enjoyed.
Either Barabraham Lincobama has purposefully crossed the line between a tribute and identity theft, or he's simply obsessed with following the advice of a whisper that awakened him one night in Springfield: "If you cook it, Abe will come."
Somebody remind me... how is impersonating one former president and hiring a bushel of Clintonites to run your administration "change"?
