OH YES! I JUST THOUGHT THE WORLD OF MR. LINCOLN. PRESIDENT OBAMA REMINDS ME OF HIM SO MUCH. I FOUGHT AT ANTETIEM, YOU KNOW, AND THEN AT GETTYSBURG...OR WAS IT 'BERG? BUT ANYHOW, I LIKED GENERAL LEE AS WELL. HE REMINDED ME OF COLIN POWELL, HE DID. AND THAT MRS. LINCOLN, I LOVED HER TOO. WHEN I THINK OF HER, I THINK OF DOROTHY TILLMAN...I DO.

brother-man, you really need help! this economy must have gotten the best of you!

I ASK MYSELF WHY WOULD A PERSON USE MY NAME TO
BLOG, ARE YOU SICK IN THE HEAD, DO YOU HAVE A
PROBLEM WITH ME, OR ARE YOU ASHAMED TO USE YOUR
OWN NAME, THE ABOVE COMMENT AT 12:09 WAS NOT MADE
BY ME, IF YOU SEE... THOSE ARE NOT MY COMMENTS,
I HAVE NEVER USED THESE SYMBOLS WHEN I BLOG,
I HAVE NEVER BEEN NEGATIVE WITH CRAZY REMARKS
AGAINST OUR PRESIDENT OR HIS FAMILY, I BELIEVE
THE PERSON DOING THIS IS JEFF MCNAIRY, IF YOU
LOOK AT HIS PREVIOUS BLOGS, HE WRITES IN THIS WAY
IF IT ISN'T HIM, I APOLOGIZE, BUT IF IT IS, STOP
USING MY NAME, I AM A REAL PERSON, WITH POSITIVE
THINGS TO SAY, STOP USING MY NAME, TO LYNN SWEET
CHECK MY E-MAIL ADDRESS BEFORE YOU LET MY
COMMENTS GO THROUGH, THIS IS GETTING TO BE CRAZY,
AND I DON'T WANT THE SECRET SERVICE VISITING MY
HOME BECAUSE WE HAVE A SICK INDIVIDUAL BLOGGING
IN MY NAME! PLEASE STOP USING MY NAME TO BLOG!
PLEASE GET YOURSELF SOME HELP MENTALLY, TO DO THIS
IS SICK!

gosh, phil, i'm flattered. all of my adult life i've wanted to be caught up in a scandal such as this...lol. what can we call it...PHILGATE? CYBERGATE? yes, that will do. i'm not a civil war buff, but i am intrigued with the terseness of the caps.
best
