Elizabeth Warren (aka Fauxcahontas) gave the keynote speech on the first night of the Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia. She spoke from behind the safety of a wall that you can see at the top of this post. The wall was hastily constructed after the minions got rowdy and rudely booed erstwhile DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz off the stage and out of the convention entirely, and after said minions also (threateningly?) chanted “lock her up” whenever Hillary Clinton’s name was mentioned.

Happy Birthday to Republican President Abraham Lincoln!

As we all know, no longer is this day honored in the many states with a declared holiday. Lesser men have decided to combine Honest Abe’s birthday celebration with the commemoration of George Washington’s birthday. They have renamed it and re-purposed it as President’s Day, which is this coming Monday.

Honest Abe was the very first (and let us fiercely hope not the last) Republican president.
