Quote of the Day

"All I can tell is you is Abe Lincoln would not have done it."—Professional Genius Bill O'Reilly, on President Barack Obama's much talked-about appearance on the Funny or Die web series "Between Two Ferns."

No shit he wouldn't have. Because President Abraham Lincoln lived and died about eleventy million years before the internet was even invented by Al Gore.

I know, I know—O'Reilly meant that President Lincoln was too dignified to have used an extremely popular medium in order to promote a national initiative.

But President Lincoln grew a beard because a little girl told him he'd look better with one, so maybe we shouldn't jump to any conclusions about whether ol' Abe might have considered jerking around with Zach Galifianakis for some easy PR.
