Doris Goodwin Kearns was a guest on The Imus Show this morning and was putting the Roberts nomination and the Rove-Gate story in context with Lyndon Johnson's race against Barry Goldwater. As she was telling the story, Doris shared with us Goldwater's private feelings on losing to Johnson:
Doris: What a way to win an election. Communists and C*&%-Suckers!
Imus was stunned that this mild mannered historian threw out the word so nonchalantly.
He then asked her if she was drinking. Doris didn't realized that she said something inappropriate for radio. Doris--thanks for the eye opener to get my day started.
