Huckabee: A Ford, Not A Lincoln

Name In Vain  lincoln-head-pops.jpg

Hope Arkansas’s Second Son Mike Huckabee graced the stage at the Republican convention’s Wednesday session, offering up democrat and  god fearin’.

Sadly the Arkansas Augustus has been caught out making up a Lincoln quote, the gist of which is to make Old Abe an enemy of big government. It’s been attributed to much of the Founders pantheon, but it’s really just a Gerry Ford line from the 70s.

The whitest Republican convention in forty years remains eager to drop Lincoln’s name, the latest being both Cindi and John McCain Thursday night.
