    Steven A. Douglas was a great debater but Abraham Lincoln was the great emancipator.

    I always read this song as "Decatur, or, Round of Applesauce for Your Step Mother!" HAHA. Even when I first discovered the song I though it was applesauce instead of applause.

    This song is a fun exercise in rhyming. It's definitely one of my favorites from Sufjan's lighter songs.
