Spiro Agnew was heard calling the
current crop of living politicians "a bunch
of over-stuffed windbags." Pretty tepid stuff
considering the source. Too bad speechwriter
Bill Safire hasn’t kicked the bucket yet.
Strange bedfellows: Estes Kefauver and
Everett Dirksen joined forces with Eugene
V. Debs asking for a little more attention
to details around here. Just last week Former
House Speaker Carl Albert slipped on
a banana peel and John Foster Dulles
found a piece of glass in his soup.
Meanwhile, an "ambassadorial mission"
to the living by Sen. Albert Gore, Sr.
(D-Tenn.- Deceased) and Sen. Prescott Bush
(R-Conn.- Deceased) has been quashed. As Margaret
Chase Smith (R-Maine- Deceased) said,
"the whole idea seems pretty ghoulish."
Finally, whatever became of perennial presidential
candidate Harold Stassen? Until he dies,
I guess we’ll never know.
