A Life Tragically Cut Short

Why I watch local news. Karen Hensel, Channel 8:

"Lincoln would have turned 200 last week."

Oh! Oh! Can I play?
John Madden: "You let those guys in the end zone, they're gonna score!"

Sure, doesn't have that local cachet, but I wanted to play along...

Lincoln would have turned 200 last week, and ...

(1) he would still be eligible to drive in Florida.

(2) he would still be getting his clothes from Thornton Mellon's Big and Fat Stores.

(3) he would have said something cryptically insulting/amusing to Dubya's face but Dubya wouldn't have gotten it.

(4) he would have voted for Barack Obama even has he admired Sarah Palin's gams and spunky pioneer spirit.

If we're talking about "over in his grave", then Lincoln has turned at least 200.

Do you think somebody in the back wrote that just to see if Karen would read it out loud?
