. . . has a birthday today that is celebrated throughout the land, especially at neocon think tanks and tabloids. I speak of course of the man the “Straussian” wing of neoconworld refers to as “Father” Abraham Lincoln. So I thought I’d offer some reading suggestions as part of today’s birthday celebration.
Lincoln was by far the most hated, despised, and reviled of all American presidents during his lifetime, as historian Larry Tagg documents in The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln: America’s Most Reviled President. His deification was the posthumous work of the Republican Party propaganda machine.
