Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Pop Quiz!

It's a lazy, ridiculously hot day here in the Valley (yesterday it reached the highest temperature - 118 - since 1995), and I thought I'd throw a pop quiz at you on a slow weekend afternoon. Don't fret, it's multiple choice and only one question!

Whose words are these?

"... within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made."

What a great quote! Was it:

A. Joseph McCarthy.
B. John F. Kennedy.
C. David Duke.
D. Lyndon B. Johnson.
E. Harry S Truman.
F. George W. Bush.
G. Bill Clinton.

Choose wisely, grasshoppers! I will reveal the answer tomorrow!

C is the obvious choice, so that's out. A seems also to be a trap. F and G are unthinkable. E is the unknown factor. It might be D, because he was that crass. I'm gonna go with D or --- for the shock twist end --- B.

I agree, it's not A or C. F would suggest more thought than is likely. G is a possibility, but in this age, it would have been picked up and used against him by now.

B, D, or E- all dead, so all possible. But E was too close to the astual events, so seems unlikely, which leaves B and D. If it was written, B. If it was said...I dunno. Was B, aware of his rock star status, able to discern that in another.

OK, it's B. Or D. It's not E, is it?

I would say B, A & C seem too obvious. I'm guessing the quote would be from someone alive at the end of WW II, so F & G would not really count, they'd be too young. D was in Congress around then, I don't think he was especially interested in foreign policy and E would have been VP and wasn't a foreign policy guy either.
B, but I'd really say "H", Joe Kennedy.

This was on one of those History Channel documentary shows a long time ago. I believe the answer is, "B."

I'm thinking B. I'm also thinking that GW wishes something like this would be said about him.
