I sent Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit a note regarding the Lincoln quote on this post, and lo and behold I get mentioned. Too bad I did not use my blog handle, eh?
This week, Joe Scarborough and others claimed Sarah Palin was un-presidential because she responded ot the attempts to link her to the shooting in Tucson. Based upon the Lincoln quote mentioned at Instapundit, it would appear that she is guilty of doing the same thing that Lincoln did and he was certainly presidential. The quote in question,
You charge that we stir up insurrections among your slaves. We deny it; and what is your proof? Harper’s Ferry! John Brown!! John Brown was no Republican; and you have failed to implicate a single Republican in his Harper’s Ferry enterprise. If any member of our party is guilty in that matter, you know it or you do not know it. If you do know it, you are inexcusable for not designating the man and proving the fact. If you do not know it, you are inexcusable for asserting it. . .
“Based upon the Lincoln quote it would appear that Sarah Palin, rather than acting ‘un-presidential’ in her response this week as her critics claim, was acting quite presidential after all. Even Lincoln-esque.”
It is good to be noticed by the blogfather!
