Lincoln on the blood libel of 1860

You charge that we stir up insurrections among your slaves. We deny it; and what is your proof? Harper's Ferry! John Brown!
John Brown was no Republican; and you have failed to implicate a single Republican in his Harper's Ferry enterprise. If any member of our party is guilty in that matter, you know it or you do not know it. If you do know it, you are inexcusable for not designating the man and proving the fact. If you do not know it, you are inexcusable for asserting it. . . -- Power Line

Your Say

To put it bluntly: "Put up or shut up."

And if you can't do either: "Stick it up your ass."

(Thank you, Mrs. Palin, for plain speaking. Again.)
