Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) fired back at President Obama on Wednesday for his comments about President Lincoln.

Lincoln — they used to talk about him almost as bad as they talk about me, Obama said Tuesday in Iowa, while making a point about the historical bickering between U.S. politicians of different ideological stripes. Folks are throwing elbows, and thats always been how American democracy has functioned.

Palin countered Obamas comments Wednesday on Twitter:

Obama:Lincoln-they talked about him almost as bad as they talk about me Mr. Pres- tour Lincoln Museum anti-Abe display;try repeating claim.

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Ill., hosts a display of anti-Lincoln material, including pamphlets and cartoons from the 1860s.

Obama is in Illinois on Wednesday for the third day of his bus tour, with stops scheduled in Atkinson and Alpha. There are no announced plans for him to visit the Lincoln Museum.
