Abe Was Nominated Where?

Enough people have piled on to Gloria Steinem for her disgusting speech making fun of John McCain that I don't have to. But I did notice one extremely odd sentence that no one else seems to have called Steinem on:
There is, she said, “a great deal of pressure at play for her to act like her gender and give in.” Several shouts of “No!” came from the crowd. Steinem went on: “It’s a way of reinforcing the gender roles, right? Men are loved if they win and Hillary is loved if she loses. … But maybe we shouldn’t be so afraid of an open convention that actually decides something. After all, it was an open convention in New York City that gave us Abraham Lincoln.

Er, Gloria, the Republican convention that gave us Abraham Lincoln was held in Chicago.

Thanks to Michelle Malkin for leading me to the quote.
