Saturday Spotlight: Great Americans, And Other Americans Too

  • Thanks to Hamilton, we all now appreciate Alexander Hamilton as a brilliant, influential, albeit flawed founding father. I mean, also thanks to Hamilton I keep thinking a sarcastic “awesome, wow!” when somebody says something stupid and hold the opinion that John Adams doesn’t have a real job anyway. This week we broke down the lyrics to The Ten Duel Commandments, a song about great Americans Hamilton and Laurens, great-yet-kind-of-a-weenie American Aaron Burr, and General (Whee!) Lee.
  • Meanwhile in modern American politics, we’re wondering what the heck Lincoln Chafee’s deal is. We don’t know, but we have guesses. Just try to tell me the man doesn’t whittle.
