Groucho Marx Sings Im Against It Groucho Marx sings two songs in Horse Feathers (1932): I'm Against It and I Always Get My Man. I've always thought the first song was terrific. (I tend to sing it myself whenever I see a politician or an activist on TV espousing a cause with which I disagree.)

Lynch Mob Violence A victim of a lynch mob dangles from a bridge, circa 1910. Between 1889 and 1941, there were at least 3,811 known cases of lynching in the United States. There was never any federal anti-lynching legislation passed because southern politicians saw lynching as a necessity to maintain order in their communities. Many of these acts of vigilantism were photographed and sold as souvenir postcards!

Watertight Smith William Alden Smith was a respected and capable career politician from Michigan who, unfortunately, became the subject of ridicule for one unfortunate public statement. Smith served in the Michigan House of Representatives, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate. When the R.M.S. Titanic sank in 1912, Smith chaired the American investigation into the maritime tragedy. Although the inquiry was responsible for creating many improved international safety measures regarding oceanic shipping, Smith was widely mocked (especially in the British press) for asking why the passengers in the doomed ship didn't seek safety in the Titanic's watertight cabins. It was pointed out to Smith that the so-called watertight cabins were meant to keep the ship afloat, not to hold passengers. Furthermore, the cabins would have been no help to passengers as they sank with the rest of the Titanic. The British newspapers quickly nicknamed the distinguished senator 'Watertight' Smith.

Jeannette Rankin - Lone Vote Against War with Japan Many people find it hard to believe, but after the deadly surprise Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the vote by the U.S. Congress the next day to declare war on Japan was not unanimous. Jeannette Rankin, a Republican from Montana, cast the lone dissenting vote. Declaring the war to be unnecessary and adhering to her beliefs as a lifelong pacifist, Rankin cast the solitary negative vote. Rankin had been a congresswoman during the First World War and had voted against America's entry into that conflict--along with 49 others--in 1917. Returning to politics more than two decades later, Rankin had, in fact, campaigned in 1940 on an anti-war platform and had won. Not surprisingly, very few people in her home state supported her decision after the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. So unpopular was her stance that Rankin decided not to run for re-election when her term expired in 1943. Interestingly, Rankin did not vote against declaring war on Germany and Italy following their declarations of war on the U.S. a few days later. Instead, she voted merely 'present.' During the remainder of her life, (Rankin lived to be nearly 93) she travelled to India seven times and was a devotee of Gandhian principles of non-violence.
