Abraham Lincoln was elected to congress in 1846.

John F. Kennedy was elected to congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected president in 1860.

John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960

The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

Both wives lost their children while living in the White
House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

Both were shot in the head.

Here is an interesting one...

Both successors were named Johnson.

And last but not least...

Well, some of the coincidences are just wrong, too.

yes, but inaccuracy is ok in that is used to set up the punch line at the end

and both got murdered because of introducing non-interest bearing Greenbucks into the economy to thwart the efforts of the international banking elite from taking over control of all commerce, fuel and food industries... Lincoln and Kennedy failed.

and the very interesting proof of this...

If you really look into it, I bet I have some amazing connections with Lincoln as well.

First off, his name was Abraham, and my name isn't, but I read about some guy in the bible named Abraham. And I read that part on a Friday (the day Lincoln was shot!!!)

Lincoln was shot in the head and as a baby, I was dropped on my head.

Abraham Lincoln was around 6'6" tall and wore a top hat and if I wore a big enough top hat, I could look 6'6" tall.

Lincoln was shot in Ford's Theater, and I once drove a Ford to a movie theater.

Lincoln was shot by a southerner and I have been to Florida once.

Lincoln was the 16th president, and I am 16 years old.

Lincoln has 7 letters in it and if you take the initial of my first name and add it to my last, it equals 7.

At first glance at the title, I thought this thread was about that Raider loser Lincoln Kennedy.

You know what's crazy? Both his names have 7 letters and he was caught in a theater after running from a whorehouse.
