John Caldwell Calhoun: (1782 – 1850)
7th Vice President of the United States, serving under both John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson. Additionally, he represented South Carolina as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. He was the 10th U.S. Secretary of War and 16th U.S. Secretary of State.
John Donald Imus:
Radio and television talk show host, humorist, writer, and philanthropist.
There is bit of similarity between the mugs of these two…
Believe it or not, but I think Calhoun might actually be smiling in his portrait.
Did you know that Calhoun was an advocate of slavery and nullification? Some might compare that to Imus’ belief that the Rutgers University women’s basketball team is is comprised entirely of "nappy-headed hoes." Twinkies?
Want to know of another individual that is often compared to both Imus and Calhoun?
I have to note that while Sam may be a staunch conservative, he is more motivated by moral righteousness rather than constrained prejudice.
