    Make your enemies into friends!?  Lincoln was so good at that and he got shot by an enemy in the process?  Oh dear me.

      are not honored.  His effort to reconcile disparate factions and personalities is commendable and should be held high.  

      A lot of high school students don't see what the big deal is with Lincoln. They sit through their history classes in a half-coma.

      History generally and Lincoln particularly is owed more than that.  His model of citizenship is a component of their adulthood whether they are generous of spirit enough to acknowledge it or not.

    •  Lincoln was a lesson in trying to domesticate (2+ / 0-)

      you goddamned enemies.

      Enemies are enemies. That's why we coined the term.

      Republicans ARE the enemy and all the bleeding heart emotionalism and desire by some to hug these freaks like they are some sort of lost basket of puppies is fucking sickening.

      They will rip your face off no matter how warm and fuzzy your thoughts are about them.

      Rabid dogs aren't cuddly.

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
