I took the kids and voted this morning. There was no waiting in line, and it was amazingly efficient. There WAS a Republican representative sitting right by the electronic ballot box, and he was matching voter names to his master list as they signed in. Interesting.... Now we just have to wait.

I'll create a post later, but for now here's a site with all of the Electoral College returns. Thanks Jerry!

“Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale & undermine the military are saboteurs & should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.” - President Abraham Lincoln

Lincoln never said this. Ever. This quote is a fabrication of Dr. J. Michael Waller, a long time Republican pundit, who first wrote it in a Moonie publication, Insight Magazine on December 23, 2003 shortly before the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth gave it life in 2004.

I have two original King & Baird pamphlets in my collection, the identical pamphlet Waller sites as his proof, “TRUTH FROM AN HONEST MAN”. Lincoln never wrote anything like this … here, or anywhere else.

How pathetic has the Republican Party become that it insults the reputation of America’s finest Republican president for their political gain?
