This is kind of funny. Whatever it started as, the Lincoln Project became a tool to help elect Joe Biden and other Democrats. Now it seems the Lincoln Project has become enamored of bipartisanship and has launched a new project, the Franklin Project, with a video showing Joe Biden elbow-bumping Mike Pence, Bill Clinton and George Bush sharing a lectern, first ladies Michelle Obama and Melania Trump chatting in the White House, and so on. Civility is the name of the game here, which sort of explains why the Lincoln Project had to create an entirely new entity to promote it, seeing as their own toxic Twitter feed is full of partisan trolling.

The Franklin Project will no doubt lean hard-left, just like every “country over party” organization (like Matthew Dowd’s “bipartisan” organization).
