I had to make a list of American Presidents and a search turned up this list. What caught my eye was the fact that the US didn't have a Vice President for several extended periods of time, including after the death of Elbridge Gerry (from whose name we get gerrymander). I was tempted to title this Your Bucket of Warm Piss Friday Open thread, but Garner's other comments on the post were better:
The Houston Post (November 8, 1967) related the story that he told to a circus clown: “I am vice president of the United States. you’d better stick around a while—you might pick up some new ideas.” San Antonio Light reporter Tom McGowan wrote in his farewell that Garner had referred to being elected vice president as “the worst mistake in my life” and repeated the reference to Garner’s assertion that the office was the “spare tire of government.”
Have at it.
