The front page includes an article entitled: "A Capitol Hit - The Lincoln Catechism Questions and Answers", a series of disparaging question and answers about Lincoln. Sample question and answers: "What is the Constitution? A compact with Hell now obsolete. By whom has the Constitution made obsolete? By Abraham Africanus the 1st. To what end?
