Honest Abe, eh?

Campus Progress is holding a contest for the best misinterpretation of a historical quote, inspired by recent right-wing misquoting of Paul Begala.

As an example, they offer this:

Lincoln accuses Pierce Administration officials of sexual liaisons
Before settling down to a dull explication of the progress and objectives of the Civil War, President Lincoln opened a Pennsylvania speech by offering veiled charges that, in 1856, a quartet of officials in Franklin Pierce’s administration engaged in sexual couplings. “Four score,” Lincoln told the startled crowd, “and seven years ago!”

All I have to say is: A house divided cannot stand, unless it has Viagra.
