I for one wouldn't be at all surprised if LBJ turned out to be the one who arranged for the demise of JFK. Both of them were creepy, anyway. I think it's a good excuse to make a law that says "No Texans can be president.
I'm trying to figure out how I can blame some unhappy thing about Callas on LBJ. Unfortunately this is proving difficult. Well, maybe the unfortunate comeback bid was LBJ's fault. Well... uh...
When I was a teenager (or before perhaps) I acquired a book -- a parody of Mao's little red book that was "Sayings from Chairman LBJ." I still have it -- I'll have to look it out. It's uproariously funny. Just snippets from stump speeches, I think.
