A donkey's tail is nice and hairy, lift it up... it's John F'n' Kerry!
Hey that is great. As I remember Brit Hume's grandfather worked for the Washington Post and did the review of Margaret Truman's piano recital. Hume gave a poor review and President Truman threatened to "punch him in the nose." At the time, this was shocking. I guess now it would be ordinary RAT conduct.

I guess I'd threaten to punch someone in the nose who criticized my daughter's piano playing too. Well, unless she was over 18 and could punch them herself. :) Maybe it's more of a dad thing than a Rat thing?
It has been fun hearing about some of the dirty campaigns of yesteryear. You'd think "dirty politics" was invented this year by the way everyone is carrying on.

(Politics is show business for ugly people.)
The music critic who panned Margaret Truman's singing was Paul Hume, 1915-2001, who married in 1949 and had 4 children: Paul, Michael, Ann, and Peter. I don't remember what Who's Who has for Brit's parents or date of birth, and couldn't find anything useful with a Google search just now; he can't be Paul Hume's grandson but perhaps is related in some other way. I thought Brit was a nickname.
