WHEN THE NOTORIOUSLY MONOSYLLABIC CALVIN COOLIDGE DIED


Coolidge: a different type of Presidential dullard

When the notoriously monosyllabic Calvin Coolidge died, Dorothy Parker reportedly asked "How could they tell?"

And while we're on the subject of the 30th US President, it is said that after a church service a reporter asked Coolidge what was the subject of the sermon. "The minister preached on sin," CC replied. So what exactly did the minister say about sin, the reporter asked. "He was against it," said Coolidge.

Would that US Presidents were that witty these days.

Coolidge's lack of animation may be because he spent most of his time eiter waking up or falling asleep. Apparently, he went to bed at 10 and got up between 7 and 9. He would then sleep for around 4 hours in the afternoon from 1 until about 5 o'clock.

Don't they keep that hysterical sociopath Bush on a steady diet of mood-altering prescription drugs? IMO he would've been flipping out publicly long ago if it wasn't for his handlers/minders having him doped to the gills...
