Maybe If I Was More Barry Than Barack

In 1860 three weeks before the presidential election an eleven year old girl wrote this letter to the Republican candidate from Illinois.

Hon A B Lincoln

Oct. 15, 1860

Dear Sir

My father has just home from the fair and brought home your picture and Mr. Hamlin’s. I am a little girl only eleven years old, but want you should be President of the United States very much so I hope you wont think me very bold to write to such a great man as you are. Have you any little girls about as large as I am if so give them my love and tell her to write to me if you cannot answer this letter. I have got 4 brother’s and part of them will vote for you any way and if you let your whiskers grow I will try and get the rest of them to vote for you you would look a great deal better for your face is so thin. All the ladies like whiskers and they would tease their husband’s to vote for you and then you would be President. My father is a going to vote for you and if I was a man I would vote for you to but I will try and get every one to vote for you that I can I think that rail fence around your picture makes it look very pretty I have got a little baby sister she is nine weeks old and is just as cunning as can be. When you direct your letter direct to Grace Bedell Westfield Chatauque County New York

I must not write any more answer this letter right off Good bye

Grace Bedell

Abraham Lincoln granted the young girl’s wishes and grew a chin curtain beard also known a Donegal.

He won the election and Became the first American president with a beard.

Barack Obama must get thousands of similar letters every year, but judging from how divided the country is on Race, many political pundits must been wondering why our first black president has taken measures to whitify himself a la Michael Jackson.

That would catch the KKK by surprise, because this election might be about jobs, but the real issue as always is equality and no growing a beard will free us.

Once you go black, you never come back.

ps even racist have a sense of humor.

Q. What would you get if you crossed Albert Einstein with Barack Obama?
A. E = MC Hammer
