A quote from U.S. Senator John "The Ohio Icicle" Sherman (principle author of the Sherman Antitrust Act) about President James Buchanan, the man who set the stage for the Civil War by claiming that while secession was illegal, going to war over it was, too. The quote about him seems also to apply to the situation in which we find ourselves with the current Chief Executive;
"The Constitution provides for every accidental contingency in the executive - except a vacancy in the mind of the President."
Wow. A few things: I always like it when Wikipedia's summaries have the only things I already knew about the person in them - that means I now have to read the whole article, because I haven't learned anything in the first paragraph, and that apparently, I should be writing summaries for Wikipedia. Two: I have a huge archive of pictures of this failed waste of a human being - namely President Dubya Monkeyface - that I dip into whenever I'm nailing him up for something. Or in this case, nothing at all. I think I'm going to put a little gallery over there on the left of these, so you can just enjoy them all at once. Three: Buchanan's widely regarded as being one of the shitty Presidents, right up there with Tyler and Harrison - I keep wondering if Bush will make that list, or if, in the revisionist society in which we live, his legacy will become the watered down thing that Nixon's has, where people say things like "China good, too bad about all the lying and criminality." Except that I can't think of what the "good" part would be.
Enjoy your quote.
