Not really Lincoln related… but I figured I’d post this classic Civil War narrative In Memoriam to The Band’s Levon Helm
Just caught wind of this incredibly hilarious anti-Lincoln campaign out of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
It’s part of a really excellent project known as flackcheck.org highlighting the impact of deceptive political advertising and divisive media reporting.
I love the parallels they are drawing and I think the McClellan/Lincoln and whomever-the-republican-candidate-ends-up-being/Obama metaphor is decently appropriate (albeit, clearly inaccurate and anachronistic). I highly recommend checking out the additional videos on their site.
