Annenberg Cuts Lincoln Some Flack

Last month, we told you about the Annenberg Public Policy Center's FlackCheck.org, a satirical website aimed at holding politicians accountable for all the ridiculous things they say. To prove their point, these guys have created a running series of mock ad campaigns pitted against Abraham Lincoln, debatably the most popular president in US history, designed as if he were running for office today.

There's nothing Americans hate more than a flip-flopping candidate.

Where are Abraham Lincoln's morals?

And, of course, no ad campaign is complete without an attack on a candidate's personal life.

This is just a taste of what the site has to offer. For more political humor (and jabs at contemporary politicians), updated on the reg, be sure to visit FlackCheck directly.
