Anti-FDR Roundup

Today’s Dilbert mocks one of FDR’s most famous vapid quotes. Mencken would be pleased.

My friend Kevin Vallier ran across some poems published in a college paper in 1936. Believe it or not, FDR was not necessarily worshipped at the time as he was when he entered government mythology later, (F.D. below refers to FDR):

F.D. is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down on park benches.
He leadeth me besides still factories.
He disturbeth my soul.
He leadeth me in the paths of destruction for the Party’s sake.
Yeah, though I walk through the vally of Depression,
I anticipate no recovery, for he is with Me.
