I see where you are going with this Sven. Let me try: Ronald Reagan screwed the airline traffic controllers. Is that how we play this game?

Eleanor Roosevelt smooched with Lorena Hickok, and James Buchanan slept with several southern senators, and god knows how many children were fathered by Warren G. Harding, and Bubba Clinton had a few dalliances in the White House, as did John F. Kennedy (Whoopie, let's all go swimming in the buff!), but, perhaps, the greatest philanderer of all time was LBJ (Clear the desk, I feel frisky!).

I'm sure the Founding Fathers (bless 'em), in their more rural and isolated plantations, never, ever, never-never, played footsie with the help.

If you can't believe in history I guess might as well throw all my history books away. Someone must have found out they were related to Jefferson and are trying to clear their name.One of our Presidents slept with his keeper too. In other words he did more then help him change clothes.

I think only one of the seven shacked up with Sally. And, only one of them took her to Paris.

Gee-wilikers!! Thanks for the laugh, Sven !!! I'll be waiting for that 2002 study as well.

Gee-wilikers!! This is astounding news!

You say the study came out in 2001?

I'm holding my breath to find out what the independent panel of unbiased southern scholars learned in 2002.

The Founding Fathers--bless 'em. I'm sure not one of those saints had a wandering eye.
