The morons in that recent poll that declared Obama to be the worst President of all time should read a biography of this scumbag.  The perfect mix of incompetence and corruption.

If you just learn a single trick, mistress I'm getting it on with, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it. I'm warning grope hardley.

Sorry. Slow day.

I am shocked! Shocked while simultaneously disinterested and bored.

Besides, everyone knows, people didn't have sex before the 50s. And affairs weren't physically possible until the 60s.

Well, his wife will never be president now.


\What? It's true.

I knew Warren Gargamel Harding was a bad sort from all the things he tried to do to the Smurfs.

President Harding was killed by a vampire.
 
2014-07-12 01:11:17 PM
If I were his family I'd be way more embarrassed that he was fooling around a woman who was straight up fugly as sin.

Oh, I don't know. Dig her up, stick her in front of a podium, and see how well she does against the Ryan.

I think she has a shot.

Sure, he may have had a dark side, but at least he had the decency to keep it hidden.

I'm relatively sure that Mrs. Harding had old Warren cremated after he died. I watched a "mystery in the museum" on his trail car the other day.

/ I could be misremembering

Little known fact: Warren G. Harding's porn name was also Warren G. Harding.
 
2014-07-12 01:21:50 PM
FTFA: but his administration has been widely regarded as visionless, ineffectual and corrupt. He slashed immigration quotas, appointed his cronies .....

Sheesh, there are modern-day presidents who seem to have those as guiding principles.

She had him cremated before an autopsy could be performed. She may have poisoned his ass.

Those were the days, back when Republican politicians' sex scandals still involved female adults.

You think they can read? A whole book?
I'd like to know how many presidents they can name. Might make for a good chart.

She also burned a number of his personal papers very soon after his death. We will probably never know if she did him in; but, there's definitely some hinky stuffy in her behavior after he died.

Harding was given the GOP nomination through the smoke-filled-room process and his sole qualification was that he looked presidential. It is said he would have made a decent president of a chamber of commerce for a middling city.

In fairness, I think that poll was specifically about post-WWII presidents, so Harding wouldn't count.  But you're right, Harding was absolutely awful, probably the single worst president we ever had.

Came for some sort of Boardwalk Empire reference. Leaving unsatisfied.

This made me chuckle:

"The president often wrote in code, in case the letters were discovered, referring to his penis as Jerry and devising nicknames, like Mrs. Pouterson, for Phillips."

And then the final lines. . .

"In the end, she may have offered no greater threat to the nation than that posed by any "modern woman." A modern woman who liked to climb Mount Jerry."

Maybe  you should read Harding's biography.

Corruption? Plenty of that.

But getting a nation pulled out of a postwar depression does require a certain competence utterly absent in modern Washington.

Tyler's the worst president, btw.

 "I am not fit for this office and should never have been here," That one admission places him head and shoulders above our current office holder.

As soon as I saw "Gamaliel" I knew it was President Harding. A handsome man in his day.
