Friday’s Top Ten List for March 14th

Now that Eliot Spitzer has stepped down as Governor in shame for the ‘quality time’ he spent with a high class call girl, I did some research on other political scandals throughout American history. As it turns out, there have been a lot more scandals that have not gotten much press for some odd reasons. So for today’s top ten list I present to you the Top Ten Least Well Known Political Scandals:

10. Al & Tipper Gore for bringing their high-powered foot heater with them when
they visited Greenland.

9. Millard Fillmore’s addiction to sniffing his inkwell.

8. Alberto Gonzalez’s restraining order for stalking Charo in 1975.

7. Geraldine Ferraro’s torrid love affairs in the 1960s with Mickey Dolenz, Michael
Tork and Michael Nesmith. (Davy Jones refused to monkey around with her).

6. Franklin Roosevelt was Adolph Hitler’s ghost writer.

5. Joe McCarthy’s quiet obsession with the Cincinnati Reds.

4. Jeb Bush’s illegal spear fishing in the Everglades.

3.
John Quincy Adams taxation with representation.

2. Photographs of Jesse Helms playing in a minstrel blues band.

Matt-Man's obsession with wanting to boff Tyra Banks.

Very few people know that George Wallace had a secret love affair with Aretha Franklin. The song "Freedom" made famous in the movie The Blues Brothers was actually about him not Matt (Guitar) Murphy.

Doc said...

The Anita Hill hearings were all just a big smokescreen to cover up Clarence Thomas' torrid gay love affair with Dee Snyder.

Dennis Kucinich was one arrested without incident and sebsequently released for breaking into a nail salon fondling and licking womans feet. Charges were quietly dropped.

Doc's son Patrick won a multi-million dollar lawsuit from his parents for forcing him to drink the foul-tasting Baby's Bliss Gripe Water Colic Relief Formula as an infant. The suit made national headlines and made it all the way to the Supreme Court. It became known as Gripe Water-gate.

I heard that Richard Nixon once stopped at an unmanned vegetable stand and actually left three dollars for the tomatoes he took. Cheers!!

Doc said...

New research has found that the actual cause of the Alexander Hamilton Aaron Burr duel was the fact that Hamilton used the phrase 'intensive purposes' to describing Burr's tax and spend economic plan.

Doc said...

It became known as Gripe Water-gate. - Very Funny!

Bob Misenheimer, the mayor of Kannapolis, NC, was once caught having sex with a cardboard cut-out of Dale Earnhart, Jr.

LMFAO Damn you guys Rock!

Reagan always wanted be a song and dance man so he would make his staff dress up like the cast from Cabaret and perform. He played Liza's part of Sally Bowels. Nancy played the chair.

Lu' said...

Teddy Roosevelt was often portrayed saying charge supposedly for some battle. It was really because he had a spending problem and was in debt up to his spectacles. And the Rough Riders, well that had more to do with his wife than those fellows on horse back.

Lu' said...

As for Pres' and VP scandles, well when Bill and Al spoke about Uranus, they weren't refering to outer space.

Jay said...

Ronald Reagan's Depends were delivered to the White House in boxes labeled "Confidential Presidential Briefs."

Petticoat Affair

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Petticoat Affair (also known as the Eaton Affair or the Eaton Malaria) was an 1831 U.S. scandal involving members of President Andrew Jackson's Cabinet.

Margaret "Peggy" O'Neale (or O'Neill, later Margaret O'Neill Eaton) was the daughter of a Washington, D.C. boarding-house owner who had lost her first husband, sailor John B. Timberlake, to suicide. Peggy was renowned for having a "vivacious" temperament — the implication being that she was overtly flirtatious and sexual at a time when "respectable" women, as a group, were not — and it was alleged that Timberlake had been driven to suicide because of her affair with Jackson's Secretary of War John Henry Eaton. Peggy and Eaton were married shortly after Timberlake's death, scandalizing the respectable women of the capital.

The anti-Peggy coalition was led by Second Lady Floride Calhoun, the wife of Vice President John C. Calhoun and a phalanx of other Cabinet wives, while Martin Van Buren, the only unmarried member of the Cabinet, having been widowed, allied himself with the Eatons. Jackson was sympathetic to the Eatons, in part, perhaps, because his own beloved late wife, Rachel Donelson Robards, had been the subject of equally nasty innuendo. (Her first marriage turned out to have not been completely dissolved prior to her wedding to Jackson.) That said, Jackson's First Lady, Rachel's niece Emily Donelson, nonetheless sided with the Calhoun faction.

The scandal was so intense that several members of the Cabinet finally resigned, including Samuel D. Ingham and John Branch, and Van Buren was elevated to a position as Jackson's favorite (replacing Calhoun) and the de facto heir to the Democratic party. Eventually, Eaton also resigned from the cabinet. Emily Donelson was made the "Official Hostess" under Jackson.

The "Anti-Peggy coalition" sounds like a bunch of kids who think their aunt Peg is the "cool" aunt.

The Mountain Cat said...

Wasn't Peggy the girl who Ted Kennedy drove into the lake? LOL
