God Bless President Taft: Before this bit of Ruritanian filmic nostalgia at the Llamas', I'd not associated Marilyn Monroe in my mind with William Howard Taft, and I'm happy for the addition of a new toast to the prandial repertoire.
I hadn't associated the 27th president with Isaac Hayes, either, before coming across this song parody.
Who's the fat public guy who time and history passed by? (Taft!) You're damn right!
Who is the man whose Ohio dynasty stands? (Taft!) Can you dig it?
Who's the Presidential sort who made it to the Supreme Court? (Taft!) Right on!
They say this cat Taft was a bad judger? (Shut your mouth!) Well, I'm talkin' 'bout Taft! (And we can dig it!)
He's a complicated man and no one understands what's with his woman! (Mrs. Taft!)
