Abraham Lincoln's killer shouldn't be commemorated with a C will be here.
Said the Lincoln scholar could look how close is the Lincoln.
It's inappropriate to celebrate a criminal who took the life of a great American whose memory and words -- celebrated Gettysburg it's like sign Lee Harvey Oswald stuffed dolls at the Kennedy Center.

I don't know it's just weird because that the device as we said before is whimsical and you can't -- of whimsical to something murderous.
I think that getting into a Bobble hasn't bankers and I think -- -- to be upset Abraham Lincoln gotten into a Bobble head and left it there clinical there's been born I would like one -- to be a Bobble head I don't.
I already happening I was gonna say about -- -- Disagree with K but if if the -- ever comes -- there is for sale on a store some place a Bobble head of me.
