Abraham Lincoln: Reaganesque?

Last night Stephen Colbert took the campaign for Reagan money to exciting new heights, with a proposal to hijack upcoming changes in the Lincoln penny in order to provide a fitting salute to Ronald Reagan.

In 2009 the penny will be coming out in four versions, each with a panel illustrating an aspect of Lincoln’s life.

Colbert would insert “Reagan teaching Lincoln that slavery was wrong” in order to “do the right thing and honor America’s finest leader. And Lincoln. he was pretty good too.”
