Wild-Eyed Freak

This wild-eyed freak was the twenty-ninth president of the United States.

The G stood for Gamaliel. Gamawhat?

Loved women and Ohio, according to John Ashbery. Liked to disappear into closet beside Oval Office.

Invented words ‘bloviate’ and ‘normalcy’, the latter because he couldn’t pronounce ‘normality’.

Once said ‘I would like the government to do all it can to mitigate, then, in understanding, in mutuality of interest, in concern for the common good, our tasks will be solved.’

Mostly too pissed or busy playing poker to start any interesting wars.
