If Teddy Roosevelt was president today he'd make a Failducken by shoving Cruz up Boehner's ass, shoving Cruz/Boehner up McConnell's ass and cook it by cockpunching the results into the sun.

"A lifetime spent researching Calvin Coolidge" has to be up there with "paralyzed from the neck down at age two" among the saddest things one could ever hope to see in an obituary.

And Andrew Jackson would beat Boehner with his cane, what's your point?

grumpfuff: MFAWG: grumpfuff: MFAWG: farking Coolidge is a conservative hero now?

This. When I saw the headline I was sitting here confused, thinking it HAD to be a type.

Who the fark ever mentions Coolidge, except maybe to point out his legendary silence.

It makes sense in a way: They worship a Reagan that never existed and anybody over 40 KNOWS never existed, Nixon is problematic at best, Eisenhower was a socialist.

So they're stuck with Coolidge.

When you put it that way, it actually makes sense, and is a bit sad.

Cataholic: Woman at party:  "I bet my friend I could make you say more than two words."

Coolidge:  "You lose."

Normally your posts are aggrivating. But in this instance, you have quoted what I feel is one of the funniest quotes in politics ever, so for that, I commend you(though I think the original quote is three words, but I could be wrong).


It's actually apocryphal - almost certainly didn't happen. The problem is mostly that that quotation is attributed to Dorothy Parker who wasn't really the type for something that cutesy. What she actually said about Coolidge dying was "How could they tell?".

Moral of the story: Dorothy Parker was brilliant, Calvin Coolidge was a terrible president.

Uzzah: If Thomas Jefferson were the president today, he'd say "where the hell did all these other states come from? Hoo-wow-ee? How-ooh-he? How the hell do you even pronounce that?"


Then he'd go beat Ted Cruz and John Boehner with his cane, and challenge Paul Ryan to a duel.

I, for one, am *really* interested in how the guy responsible for the Great Depression would handle the debt ceiling crisis. I don't know if "well" would be my first guess.

So massive, debt-driven government spending can supercharge a languid economy? Correct you are! Wish more politicians understood that.

But only if it's spent on the military.

Gulper Eel: hardinparamedic: If FDR was president today, we'd not only have universal healthcare, but the WPA version 2.0 would be breathing life into our economy and modernizing our infrastructure.

For his first two terms or so, FDR wasn't fit to push the wheelbarrow that carried Winston Churchill's balls around.

The economy remained firmly in the shiatter under FDR until at long last it became apparent to him that Hitler wasn't farking around and so maybe pandering to the cheap seats by pissing all over any business that still had two quarters to rub together wasn't the best move if we didn't want the Nazis laying siege to Ebbets Field three years hence. Good for him for realizing in time that isolationism was a biatch's stance and it was time to be a nasty-ass Dresden-bombing Patton-unleashing atom-bomb-building hard ass ruthless motherfarker.

And doubly good for Truman for dropping those bombs.

When I think of Coolidge, the very last thing I think of is "Man of Action". "Corporate Stooge" and "Responsible for the Great Depression" spring to mind sooner
