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.
