A must read for today

With the constant bombardment of pompous stupidity that comes from today's White House, it's nice to reflect on how bad-ass some of our former presidents were.

You can pretty much guess at some of them.

I've always thought it pretty tough that Theodore Roosevelt finished a speech once with a bleeding hole in his chest from an assassins bullet. Conversing with the people was just too damn important to stop while some sissy doctor treats his wound.

Cool stuff.
