Petitioning Uniform

 

This is me after gathering another 100 signatures yesterday. Mel took it right after I got back. Mel dropped by to offer his support and later sent me a number of corrections and suggestions on my welty4congress website. I’ve ordered five more of the shirts so I can wear them daily from now to November.

Chastising Lincoln

While Senator Feingold is introducing a resolution to censure the President and irate Democrats are hell bent to impeach the bugger rumor has it that another little drama took place at one of our recent caucuses in Duluth.

Craig Grau told me that he’d heard that a young historian had introduced a resolution critisizing Abe Lincoln for not knowing the Constitution. It was one of the whereas’s in his resolution.

The resolution explained that the South had every right to secede and that Lincoln should have blessed their departure. Another whereas said that Lincoln would have been better off inviting Canada to join the US and the be-it-resolved asked that we start negotiating with Canada now to have them join us. Whether Canada would be permitted to succeed or not, with Lincoln’s precedent-setting war standing in the way, I have no idea. 

According to Craig the resolution passed on a vote of something like 21 to 1. Being a Democrat is going to be very entertaining.
