Lincoln's Wang

It seems as if Oliver Stone's $150,000,000 outing of Alexander the Great has competition in C.A. Tripp's The Intimate World of Abraham Lincoln. Except I can venture to say that it cost a lot less and is not as painful to sit through.

What is it with the speculation about whether or not historical figures played for the other team? If Honest Abe smoked bone, does that have any real impact on how we view his presidency during 4 of the toughest years of our nation's history? (Although, come to think of it, his love of theater was to be his undoing...)

Was Alexander gay? Was Lincoln gay? Was Jim McGreevy gay? Does it matter? Does anybody really care? Certainly not I. I would not have even written this had I not really wanted to pen a post entitled "Lincoln's wang."
