Andrew Jackson is known for defeating the British at the Battle of New Orleans. He also helped found the Democratic Party, something that Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck will be forever grateful for. Perhaps, not coincidentally, his presidential opponents called him a "jackass" and that stuck, first as the mascot for the Democratic party, and then as a good way to describe most of America's currently serving politicians, regardless of party.
Completely appropriate to our commentary on the political system, we present Jackass: 10 Years of Stupid for your iPad.
Next, we skip forward a bunch of presidents to James Buchanan. He was the only president who remained a bachelor for his entire time in the White House. I can just imagine the pick-up lines: "My White House or yours?", "Can I show you my priceless set of agencies?", "If you marry me, I'll name a state after you."
In any case, nothing says bachelor president like a selection of Android dating apps. Nothing also says "I'm so glad I'm married" as seeing these worrisome nightmares. I'm almost afraid to recommend any of these to you, because they all seem quite gnarly, but because I want to quickly get in and out (of this topic), I present to you SpeedDate for the Android.
And then there's Abe Lincoln. Honest Abe. Our first Republican president (which, when you think about it, kind of boggles the mind). He was a country lawyer, a debater (I wonder what he would have made of our current crop of incessant, sometimes idiotic Republican debates), and the author of the Gettysburg address.
Because it took many of us quite a long time to figure out how what a score was, and how to calculate four of them, I present one of my favorite apps, WolframAlpha, which calculates "four score and seven" in many different and surprising ways.
