I think I noticed that when I wiki'd up the quote. Also the "Cactus Jack" handle and that he was speaker of the House before he joined the ticket in an obvious attempt to balance the ticket of a Yankee dandy.seaborgium wrote: ↑Tue Nov 14, 2017 11:24 pmWould it help you to remember him if I told you he lived to be 99?twelvefootboy wrote: ↑Tue Nov 14, 2017 10:48 pmA synapse just fired with the name John Nance Garner, whoever the hell he is. He's the veep with the 'bucket of warm spit' quote attributed to him.alietr wrote: ↑Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:36 pmGoing through the list of Vice Presidents, I thought I'd only recognize a few names of VPs who didn't ascend to the presidency prior to the mid-20th Century, specifically Burr and Hamlin. But there are a few other noteworthy/recognizable ones -- George Clinton, Elbridge Gerry, John Calhoun, and John Breckinridge and then in the early 20th Century, John Nance Garner and Henry Wallace.
I'll remember the quote. And forget the name. No room for frivolous storage anymore. I'd have to toss out the complete lyrics to Gilligan's Island to make room for new learning.
But I'm not going to forget the courage of the fearless crew as much as I wish I could...
