Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Later this month, a new constitutional interpretation will be advanced about a major public policy issue. Monsters will try to end human freedom as we know it, only to be stopped by a heroic President.
I am referring, of course, to the movie of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Ever since his Second Inaugural, people have tried to understand the conflict over slavery in a way that healed the country by saying that the Civil War was about something more than human evil in the South. (“The Almighty has His own purposes.”). Turns out that slavery was all about vampires looking for food. It wasn’t our fault at all. What a relief!
