I think the takeaway from all this is, if you live in Charlotte, North Carolina, I'd keep my eyes open…

Two icons of the Democratic Party back when both were still alive.
"Nancy Pelosi and President Kennedy at his inauguration ball 50 years ago today. Adorable."
This was two years before she married and took her husband Paul's name, so, at this point, the 20-year-old Nancy Pelosi was still Nancy D'Alesandro. She most likely got into this event because her father Thomas J. D'Alesandro, Jr. — a former U.S. congressperson, former mayor of Baltimore and delegate to the Democratic National Convention — was a pretty big wheel down at the cracker factory.
By the way, get used to the phrase "50 years ago today" because you're gonna hear it about every three days from now on, as we head into the 50 year anniversary of everything that happened in the '60s.

Hundreds of thousands of hundreds of years from now, when future civilizations unearth the ruins of what once was the great and mighty United States of America, what will they view as being more historically significant: South Park or the office of the President?
It's hard to say. One is a collection of crass, immature, scatological jokes and the other is a cartoon…
Barack Obama & John McCain

Former PA Sen. Rick Santorum is known far and wide as the sexiest human ever to exist. He is so sexy that columnist and podcasting troublemaker Dan Savage named a byproduct of butt sex after him. But today he went after the sexiest of all Americans, the dead president known as JFK!
The occasion was the Values Voter conference, a D.C. free-for-all in which ignorant jerks wank off under folding tables to such luminaries as confirmed dumbass Christine O'Donnell, who also is sexy.
What exactly did Rick Santorum say to get Dead John F. Kennedy so upset up in Ghost Heaven?
"We are all engaged in a great battle," he told the conservative activists here. Santorum took issue with a famous speech delivered 50 years ago by then-presidential candidate John F. Kennedy, who became the nation's first Catholic president after assuring suspicious voters that "I believe the separation of church and state is absolute."
"That never was and never will be in this country," said Santorum. "Not in this country. Maybe in France."
Oh, shit, it's on! He dissed not only JFK, but also the nation of France?
Rick Santorum, you are about to be haunted each and every night by famous non-alive Kennedys, of whom there are approximately 8,000,000. Hope your suite at the Omni Shoreham Hotel is real nice and cozy-like tonight. Make some extra room in that bed for one very pissed-off dead president. You should probably also make extra EXTRA room for one of his dead ghost mistresses.
And the French will probably get you, too, by smothering you with crepes in your sleep. Maybe JFK will help with this.
