"Always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too."I can think of no response for that—and heaven knows I've tried, and for some time—so we may just have to leave that one right there. Lincoln, of course, went on to achieve great things, for which we have bestowed on him America's highest honor, his face on currency. Less talked about: Lincoln's time in a Florida biker gang; Lincoln getting drummed out of the military; Lincoln going around explaining which of his female contemporaries were and were not ladies.
I have no doubt that someone, somewhere, will propose that we put Allen West's picture on the penny. And then we will not do that, because we are not dumb. But it seems certain that Allen West, at least, is convinced that we have not heard the last from him.
