Notes[eedit | eedit soorce]

  1. The "mistletoe" nickname wis inspired bi the fact that mistletoe is a parasitic plant that attaches itsel tae a host tree tae survive. Comparin Van Buren tae mistletoe implee'd that he advanced poleetically anerly throu his connection tae the "Old Hickory" tree, that representit Andrew Jackson. This idea wis common in Whig propaganda pieces, an an aw seen in poleetical comics sic as The Rejected Minister, whaur Van Buren is shawn bein cairied intae office bi Jackson.
