In the end, this is unoriginal and rather astounding drivel on about
every level imaginable...

Where Lind "astutely notes that many mainstream historians have tended
to play down, even whitewash, Lincoln's prejudices," he and his reviewer
seem to be completely confusing the state of historical scholarship on
Lincoln today with what it was in the 1930s.  

In the end, Lind's view of Lincoln as Victorian yuppie clicks nicely
with that of the Springfield Tourist Bureau.

It's simply silly.
