Priceless (From Krup): "Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."-- Dwight D. Eisenhower, in a letter to his brother, Edgar, in 1956.

Guess Ike never heard the saying "Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers". Who said that, anyway? Homer Simpson?
