Mr. Skinny kneels before the Tall One

I don’t know if my contact within the Barack camp is O’full of it, but Mr. 73% may tour Lincoln’s tomb during his Springfield Presidential announcement.

I suggested last week that all REPUBLICAN Presidential candidates must travel to papa Lincoln’s tomb to reflect on why we are Republicans and how we have deviated from the ideals of the party he created.

Apparently, one candidate really liked my idea: but it was DEMOCRAT Obama, who may beat every GOP pretender to the punch and launch his Presidency with Lincoln’s legacy and tomb as a backdrop.

I promise you this: if Barack tours Lincoln’s tomb, I may vote for the Skinny One.

I have always like him personally, but touring the tomb shows class and a reverence of history that transcends party lines.

Go Barack Go

Interesting that Obama is conjuring up comparisons to Lincoln. If Lincoln had faced the same discrimination against "new" political parties that Barack Obama agrees with and supports, Lincoln would never have been President.

Obama has 5 letters in his name
Lincoln has 6
Think about it

But will he talk to Lincoln have have Lincoln reply, as Roland Burris said in his first inaugural speech?

I think it's a safe bet that he won't say "some day the license plates in Illinois will read 'Land of Obama' as the egocentric Burris said more than once.

"but touring the tomb shows class and a reverence of history that transcends party lines" and also a comlplete lack of substance made up for by life-affirming rhetoric and symbolic gestures rather than political will.

The real Skinny is behind the scenes powerhouse Skinny Sheehan close to the Duffs and McCormick Center powerhouse and the brains behind the Sheriff and others.
