Hubert Humphrey

"I don't mind admitting that I think sheep-dip is the only cure for everything Hubert Humphrey stands for. I consider him not only a living, babbling insult to the presumed intelligence of the electorate, but also a personally painful mockery of the idea that Americans can learn from history." – Undated, 1972

Note: Hubert Humphrey (1911-1978) was Vice President to Lyndon B. Johnson, a United States Senator from Minnesota, and the Democratic presidential nominee in 1968 (he lost the election to Richard Nixon).
