Limbaugh On Lincoln

Daniel Day-Lewis as President Abraham Lincoln.
As some of you know, my grandmother has heart problems and those problems have come back this last week; she appears to be fine for the moment, but your prayers would be greatly appreciated, and I thank you for your patience while I have been helping her.
There were a number of people greatly upset with my review of Steven Spielberg's Lincoln--including my mother--but to at least some degree, this review, and all the others I have emphasized as being either socialist or capitalist, has been vindicated by Rush Limbaugh.  On February 15, Rush discussed how the film portrays Obama as President Lincoln and a revolutionary messiah in our own time today. I hate that this wonderful subject matter, and the life of such an extraordinary man, has been pillaged by political forces he would abhor today, but at least I (and you, dear reader) know it's not just my own paranoia, there are others agreeing with me on this (at least).
