1. He'd be rolling in his grave.

Dishonest Donald is not even worthy of touching the hem of Honest Abeís trousers, much less trying to inflate himself into Lincolnís level of honor, respect, and popularity.

2. there was a realignment in 1896 and another in 1964.

democrats are really the party of lincoln now, in almost all ways except in name.

republicans are the party of slavers, not the party of freedom.
the only "freedom" they really want is the "freedom" to enslave others.

9. And, IMHO, another in 2016 apparently

Where we've got Democrats and we've got Republicans who think modern America should be destroyed and replaced with some hyper-romanticized past imaginary simulacra, hence "Make America Great Again" and even if that means allying with Putin or doing stupid things to "own the libs".

6. Fillmore destroyed the Whigs...

Lincoln gave us the Republicans.

Now the Mango Molester is bringing down Lincoln's legacy.

Given what that party has become in the last 50 years, I'm OK with that.

8. The "party of Lincoln" line has always been a way to say...

...Republicans can't be racist, because it was a Republican who freed the slaves. Putting aside the fact that Lincoln was no abolitionist and freeing slaves was not his primary goal, the "party of Lincoln" line is foolish.

Today's Republican Party is no more the party of Lincoln than today's Democratic Party is the part of pre-1964 Strom Thurmond.
