Ben Franklin didn't invent 'lectricity, yo mama invented 'lectricity!

I am reading The Unknown American Revolution, by Gary B. Nash. It is a people's history of the revolution. It tells of the common men and women and the Indians and the Blacks during the forging of our great and glorious nation. Personal dislike was apparently rife among the founders. They accused each other of all manner of scurrilous behavior. One accused another of spreading veneral disease among his females slaves. There was a lot of jealous sniping going on and some of the founders felt they would not be getting their fair share of the vainglory. Much as the Democrats are doing today. They might want to rethink their policy, they will go down in history as the party who drove the US and the world into the dark ages once again. Still the political and personal invective was better than it is today. If only Ann Coulter had such a dab hand with the insults and such a brilliant command of the English language!

From the Unkown American Revolution,

John Adams despised both George Washington and Ben Franklin and fretted that, "The history of our revolution, will be one continued lie from one end to the other. The essence of the whole will be that Dr Franklin's electric rod smote the earth and out sprang George Washington."

It pained him immensely to think the story would go on "that Franklin electrified Washington with his rod and henceforward these two conducted all the policy negotiations, legislatures and war."

Sounds exactly like the Dems belly aching about Bush's power.

You are absolutely correct. And to think that the leftists out there call barbarians stupid, and inhumane. How more wrong could they be?!?!?
