Seems no one wants to acknowledge the calibre man Abe was...or more to the point wasn't.

I can understand the Dems that know suddenly having a memory lapse; but everyone else too?

Seems odd.

ACR: you must be one of the older bloggers if you liked Abe...many don't even know who he is...and that's the real reason he comes up as neither good nor bad among thise voting in the poll..
