Well, fuck me!!!! What an amazing photo! I would love - LOVE to hear the audio for this moment.

Great shot! I'll bet LBJ got their name and number - he had a long memory, and I'd've hated to be on his bad side. ;-)

Thankye, gentlemen.

I'm amazed this photo isn't better known considering how it departs from typical campaign photos. I don;t know what caused Johnson to blow his stack (if that's what he was doing), but just about every candidate knows how to behave themselves in public (even Johnson).

And you're right, Rob. The wrath of Lyndon Johnson was not something anyone courted willingly.

Lyndon: "GET THEM YANKEE FUCKERS OUTTA HERE."

JFK: Lyndon, Chrissakes, we're in Ohio...
