Can someone explain to me, being of f'orn parts, why exactly they're called the log cabin republicans? Neither their website nor wikipedia seems to be able to explain this. Was Abraham Lincoln gay? --JeєvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 10:36, 21 November 2007 (EST)

I have no idea. --Edgerunner76 10:42, 15 April 2008 (EDT)
"Probably not", but the LCR are named for him and where he was born. An obvious hearkening back a century and a half to when the GOP was a new party and champions of civil rights, basically. humanUser talk:Human 11:24, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

I was looking into...[edit]

...some of the old articles that I had created and hit upon this. It got me to wondering when Andy might go all Ted Haggard on us. There must be some dark thing out there. I'm betting on a $500/day crack smoking habit and a twelve man Shin-O Ball-O ring. Well, maybe not, but one can hope. --Edgerunner76 10:42, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

I imagine something less dramatic, but equally tawdry, more along the lines of pulling a Larry Craig, or getting caught trolling for an affair on teh internets. Or at the worst, an untoward "relationship" with an ex-homskollar when she turns 19... humanUser talk:Human 11:24, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

Less oxymoron...[edit]

And more just straight-up moron. --PosthumanHeresy (talk) 23:25, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
