Adam Holisky, TIME TRAVELLER.

Damn, Adam beat me to it *whistle*Ok, I'm not American anyway, so I'm forgiven if I didn't know him, but I could kinda tell from the style of the painting and the recognizable facial features that he was probably of British descent, but likely a US figure, and I didn't think that because you guys are North-Americans ;) I assumed your pool of historical figures to choose from would not be limited to US/Canadian ones ;)

Ugh, such a fail guy. Warmonger after Andrew Jackson's own heart, he was.
Whigs are all such posers. Post a real president like Van Buren.

I don't know who that is, but I hate them.

Naw, Grover Cleveland is one of the best presidents of the 1800's, imho. He would probably fit the playbill as a libertarian today.

President in the mid 1800's, last president to own slaves while in the white house. Also part of the whig party.I would be a bad high school history tutor if i didnt at least know a tiny bit about the guy...

I know my brother was named after Zachary Taylor.Kinda makes him easy to recognize :P

@ThatOneGuyI kind of got a "Yo, Sacco. I'mma let you finish, but Grovah Cleveland was one of the best presidents of all time!" vibe from your post. Which I wholly agree to. Go Grover! Also @ Sedna Free Soil Party FTW! What ever happened to those guys!?

I didn't think we would run into one another so soon, but seeing as The Queue is a daily publication, I can't say I'm surprised.After spending what seemed like endless minutes of research using the renowned search engine, Google, I have come to the conclusion that, just as Siorra suggested, you are a Time Traveller.Apparently, that involves being able to "traverse" the expanse of "time" in what one could call a fancy, far-too-gilded and overly-complicated machine. My thoughts first arrived on a gold-plated slot machine/Maytag clothes dryer hybrid, with a penny-farthing seat haphazardly duct-taped to the lint compartment. But no, you're obviously far too cunning for such a design...As you surely can tell, this one-sided banter with you has blossomed into my lone source of joy in the cold December of my days. Yes, that may be pitiful and slightly disturbing. Does it render my efforts for naught? Slightly, but not by nearly enough. Thus, I trudge onward in hopes that my quest shall lead me to victory. One day, sir, one day.

Screw Zachary Taylor. That guy uses too much autotune.

Sacco certainly missed an opportunity here. The Queue works in themes. So the proper response to Katy Perry being in the last Queue was to make today's Queue lead with a picture of Commodore Matthew Perry (the US Naval officer credited with opening Japan to trade with the West) or his brother Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry (most famous for defeating a British naval force in Lake Erie during the War of 1812).

General during Mecican-American war. 2nd president to die in office. Died after eating cherries and chilled milk. Semi-popular theory is that he was actually poisoned with arsenic, but no real evidence has ever been found.

Damn. I thought it was James K. Polk. Now I feel dumb.For the record, the best president was Theodore Roosevelt. And anyone who says otherwise hates America. Dude shrugged off being shot in the chest, wrestled mountain lions, plus this: http://media.gamespy.com/columns/image/article/110/1109681/making-games-cinematic-in-ways-that-actually-matter-20100730021249713.jpgI like Teddy's pepper sauce.

Correct me if im wrong. Didn't Zachery Taylor die of pneumonia after giving a 5 hour inaugural address in the freezing January rain?

You are thinking of William Henry Harrison, Khayman. Completely different post-Washington pre-Lincoln President that gets maybe a paragraph in US History textbooks.

You're thinking of William Henry Harrison, Khayman. That was the other war hero Whig who got elected President and then died shortly into his term allowing his vice president to run the party into the ground by completely changing the platform. After Andrew Jackson was president, Whigs decided to say, "screw you Henry Clay, we only nominate war heroes."
