Today -100: August 6, 1912: Of bull moosers


The NYT on the Bull Moose convention: “It was not a convention at all. It was an assemblage of religious enthusiasts. ... It was a Methodist camp meeting done over into political terms.”


Jane Addams of Hull House is a delegate at the convention and is not happy with its fucking-over of Southern blacks.

Oh, those Marines Taft sent to Nicaragua were sent at the request of the government. If you say so.
