When I was 7, America elected a fellow named John Kennedy president. He had been a senator and he was witty. His daddy was rich as he made money the way John Hancock did, by smuggling. Hancock smuggled tea. Kennedy’s dad smuggled hooch. In 1958, Kennedy began a speech to the Gridiron Club — a journalist organization when newspapers ruled the land — by saying
Great post. Kennedy is a national treasure. We need 99 more like him in the senate.
I am so jealous. He is a Mississippian by birth and he will always be a Mississippian, but he isn’t our Senator. Our two RINO senators suck. Why, oh why did his parents move?
Think Senator Kennedy plagiarized the looney tones character Foghorn Leghorn (Senator Claghorn):
"Gal reminds me of the highway between Forth Worth and Dallas - no curves."
"Looks like the boy genius is tryin' to show me up."
"Nice boy but he's got more nerve than a bum tooth."
"Oh, that woman got a mouth like an outboard motor."
"That dog is as subtle as a hand grenade in a barrel of oatmeal."
"Who's responsible for this unwarranted attack on my person?"
"That's a joke son, I say, that's a joke."
"Pay attention to me boy! I'm not just talkin' to hear my head roar"
"Boy's gotta mouth like a cannon, always shootin' it off"
"Now what, I say what's the big idea bashin' me on the noggin' with a rollin' pin!"
"Boy, I say boy, pay close attention to me, "cause you're a burrito short of a combination plate."
this was a much needed pick-me-up after an awful week. Thanks Mr. S!
Thank you for all of the reminders of John Kennedy's Greatest Hits! I love his humor and the way he uses it - just like Mark Twain. He is a wise man, one of my favorites.
Excellent. Keep up the great work. Articles like this lift my spirit for the rest of the day.
Outstanding column on a true national treasure,I love the expressions of his colleagues. when he speaks.Thank you Don.
I sure wish I had heard about all of these wonderful quips and quotes when they actually happened. But being on a permanent forty-years-behind-schedule schedule, I'm just grateful that these events happened in the 21st century.
On a humorous note, Dr. Walker (Pfizer director; exposed by Project Veritas) has just confessed that he did all this "lying" to impress Don Lemon (CNN. We recycle the John Hinckley Jr.-Jodie Foster gallows-humor from time to time).
Awesome Column Dear Don
For the Dems
Don’t fall 4 every hoax
Don’t jump into every boat
Dems fall for their own BS
Believe their own lies
Faith / Trust and Truth dies
Everytime they open
Their mouths 👄
A pseudo religion
A contagion 😷
