Stupid shit in my email

Item 1. - Fwd:Political cartoonists have finally awakened
Various political cartoons implying that the stimulus bill is Obama's baby and ignoring that it seems to be working tolerably well. The stimulus is probably the only thing of substance Dubya ever got right. The asinine suggestion that Obama has not been criticized by political cartoonists, especially stupid given there's a Mallard Fillmore comic amongst them. Right wingers live in a past so thoroughly fictionalized it doesn't include a segue from the recent.

There's something at the end that's supposed to be a quote from Abe Lincoln

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

Like so many quotes from historical notables in political emails, it's fake.

Item 2. - Fwd: Who Assigns Tail Numbers?
Shopped picture of air force one with NI66ER on the tail where 28000 or 29000 should be. A nice reminder that anyone who has ever prefaced a statement with "I ain't prejudiced but..." probably is.
