Just what did his act consist of for him to even play Vegas? Shilling @0 Mule Team borax and talking about how he lost out to Bogart for "Casablanca"?

Believe it or not, he emceed a Chimp act and attempted a couple song and dance numbers.

Remember, this was at a time when John Foster Dulles could have played Vegas if he wanted to. Some of those hotels would have put anyone onstage.

When he was elected, I went to Europe for a vacation - the first question everyone asked over there was, "How can you elect a man who had to play second fiddle to a monkey?" It was not possible to explain this to them, believe me.

Well It's better than electing the monkey, as we can see.
