We can't rewrite history, unfortunately. There are ways to wrap long 
lines when viewing git log (just looked into it). For example, while 
viewing the log, you can type -S and hit Enter to switch line-wrapping 
modes. The "Fold long lines" mode wraps lines. This is a feature of the 
less text viewer that git log uses.
