60. Hell, Dead-Horse-Beatin' is what politics is all about.
That JFK fellah sure packs a mean meme. His brother even a bigger one. Those memes trigger up certain ethical statements of the highest order, containing not only the history but also the historical meaning juxtaposed with current history. They were thinking, feeling, ethical men. Rare in the game, at that level.

Let's beat the hell out of that dead horse. Maybe it'll get up and walk again. I love that old horse. Dammit.

I'm not sayin', I'm just hopin'.
