Make up your own fucking character, or at the very least have the decency to make a surrogate Lincoln, no matter how thinly veiled.
This is what I don't get. You'd be ok with it if it was clearly a fake Lincoln then, right? That's what I'm getting from that statement. (Kind of like 'Life of Brian
,' right? That's what you're getting at?)
So, from that, I gather that you're arguing that there are people out there who think a Burton-made, vampire hunting Lincoln is actually the real Lincoln? And that's the problem? (Because if that's not what you're saying then I don't understand the surrogate comment.)
If those people are out there, well, at some point I feel like we shouldn't have to be responsible for certain people.
