In Memoriam Lloyd Bentsen

Lloyd Bentsen, businessman, senator, statesman, Texan, Bush/Quayle smackdowner, has died.

Bentsen pwn3d Bush 41 early in his career, and years later put 41's VP candidate on the mat with this jawbreaker:
When his younger opponent compared himself to President John F. Kennedy, Bentsen, his voice dripping with disdain, retorted: "Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy."

Years later it still makes me cringe.
