Happy Presidents’ Day from me and mischievous Mike Pascale. (View the original 1958 art below to see how thoroughly Mike modified it for today’s comic.)

By the way, Abe Lincoln is my favorite president. Tragic and witty, he’s also easily our most quotable commander-in chief:

“If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?”

“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
