    “OOOhhhh I gotta get this on Twitter!”

    @RutherfordDan - Abe and I talk about me as Guv. #HonestAbeiswithDan

    “I was looking for the ‘Land of Me’…”


  2. - Lakeview - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:41 am:

    “What do you think of our license plates?”


  3. - Give Me A Break - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:41 am:

    Dan: “who gave Forby the big black hat”?


  4. - Pot calling kettle - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:42 am:

    After Rutherford explained Facebook, Twitter, and Pongee to President Lincoln, the President turned to an aide and said “And I thought Mary Todd was out there…”


  5. - Ronald Raygun - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:43 am:

    Dan: “I can’t decide if I’m more excited to meet Lincoln or this delegate from the Lollipop Guild.”


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:46 am:

    “Nice to meet to Treasurer Rutherford … where is that ‘Pongee’ I keep hearing about …”

    “Thought I would stop rolling over and over and see what all the fuss has been about.”


  7. - Old Shepherd - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:48 am:

    Treasurer Rutherford slowly backs away from President Lincoln as Lincoln discusses how he enacted the first income tax in the United States as a means for paying for a war.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:49 am:

    “I am here becuase I was president during the American Reconstruction, and I really want to see the ILGOP’s Reconstruction too.”

    “What I couldn’t stand as President was the ’social-climbing, career politician, who was more worried about the next office they were going to run for, instead of doing the job at hand … Hey Dan …”


  9. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:51 am:

    “What have I missed ALL these years …I missed poetry, I missed a well-told joke … I missed sunsets … and a good Corn Dog.”


  10. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:54 am:

    “Dan, Reagan sent me … I have a message. Leave the Twitter, eat a cannoli …”

    “So me, Jefferson, Taft and Adams …. no John Quincy! … so me, …”


  11. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:55 am:

    “President Lincoln, few could turn a phrase like you, can you tell us your impression of Dan Rutherford? …(smile & crickets)”


  12. - Team Sleep - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:58 am:

    “You are the worst Abraham Lincoln impersonator I have ever seen! Time to hop in Pongee and find a better one.”


  13. - WazUp - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:01 am:

    “Yes Dan I knew Ronald Reagan… and believe me your no Ronald Reagan!”


  14. - Anonymous - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:01 am:

    “You I am just pretending to President Lincoln.”
    “Well, you know I am just pretending to be Governor Rutherford.”


  15. - Foxfire - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:02 am:

    ===Dan: “I can’t decide if I’m more excited to meet Lincoln or this delegate from the Lollipop Guild.”===

    LOL!! Can’t top it. Not even gonna try.

    Agreed Foxfire, Ronald Raygun gives me today’s Pepsi-on-the-keyboard moment.


  17. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:13 am:

    Hey, I had no idea when I dressed up like Lincoln, there would be another guy impersonating another GOP president! Wow! Herbert Hoover? Really? Bet you don’t get a lot of calls to do any grand opening like I do, am I right, uh “Herby”?


  18. - wordslinger - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:13 am:

    “So your strongest states are Alabama, Mississippi South Carolina and Texas? Is there another Republican Party meeting in town?”


  19. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:18 am:

    little guy:
    “Wow! Lincoln impersonator on my left and Hoover impersonator on my right!”

    “We’re not in Kansas anymore, are we Dorothy?”


  20. - Anonymour - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:19 am:

    Mitt Romney wants to be like James K. Polk? I knew President Polk. I was in Congress when he was President. Mitt Romney, you’re no James K. Polk.


  21. - zatoichi - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:31 am:

    R: He is 203 and a vampire hunter. This guy’s cool!
    Abe: Nice teeth, huh?


  22. - Cincinnatus - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:44 am:

    Guy in Middle: “I knew Abe Lincoln, Dan. You are no Abe Lincoln.”


  23. - Ronald Raygun - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:47 am:

    Tiny man: “Clowns to the left of me… jokers to the right…”


  24. - UISer - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 10:55 am:

    A beard and a top hat does not a Lincoln make.


  25. - Anonymous - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 11:03 am:

    Wow, they have a nose like that at your tomb,,,’

    Look at that, two phonies.


  29. - wordslinger - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 11:22 am:

    “Other than that, Mr. President, how’d you like the play?”


  30. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 11:22 am:

    “Hey …hey you in the ‘top’ hat …HEY! We loved you in Twilight!


  31. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 11:24 am:

    - wordslinger -!!!!

    Glad you broke the “seal” 1st …

    Been sitting on 1 or 2, but didn’t know if others would “go there” …


  32. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 11:26 am:

    “Treasurer Rutherford wants to ask if you would like to go to a Play this afternoon, before all the speeches …”

    “What is the one thing that has been ‘haunting’ you President Lincoln all these years?”

    “How did the Play end?”


  33. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 11:31 am:

    “I want to thank Treasurer Rutherford for bringing me here today. The renovations to Ford’s Theatre are amazing, aren’t they?”

    “I told Dan that if he mentions me again on The Facebook or The Twitter, I would stake him through the heart like a vampire … so things are good.”


  34. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 11:32 am:

    “What … oh … ‘Four Eyes’, $99 dollars without the co-pay”


  35. - John A Logan - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 11:59 am:

    Mr. Lincoln. As I remember, by the way name is Dan Rutherford. But as I was saying, I Dan Rutherford come from a long line of Rutherford’s. On the door to my office it even says Dan Rutherford. Right above where it says Dan Rutherford it says treasurer. When I get my cell phone bill, right there on the paper, black print on white paper it says, Dan Rutherford. At any rate. Nice to talk with you Mr. Lincoln, Ole Abe, The great Emancipator….


  36. - DoubleD - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 12:19 pm:

    Ah Treasurer Rutherford…I know the state is in a mess…so would you mind not mentioning my name during the role call…the masses might mistake me for a convict. Oh and by the way, I have some property I need to re-claim from your list….


  37. - Six Degrees of Separation - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 12:20 pm:

    Dan Rutherford: “I’ll play Stephen Douglas, after I eat 10 Hoagies from the Chenoa Hen House!”


  38. - Because I say so... - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 12:33 pm:

    Abe..What in God’s name have you done to the Republican Party!


  39. - Anonymice - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 12:44 pm:

    “Fair and balanced, you say? That’s the best one I’ve heard in 150 years!”


  40. - Curious - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 3:21 pm:

    Hey Abe, The same rumors they spread about you are the same rumors they spread about me.


  41. - zatoichi - Thursday, Aug 30, 12 @ 9:59 pm:

    Dan catches Frodo and Gandalf in evening attire.
