Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Pink or not, she had a husband who was a damn fine actor.
One of my favorites in fact. I'll look for a picture of her and Melvyn for a "They Were an Item" post one day.
Also, for those not up on Senatorial political history, my caption refers to the fact that Helen Douglas did, in fact, give Nixon his nickname "Tricky Dick." Without her who knows what this series would be called.And it was the publisher of the L.A. Daily News, Manchester Boddy, who called her "pink right down to her underwear," not Nixon. Of course, Nixon's campaign exploited that angle immediately even printing up pink info flyers on her and stuffing mailboxes with them.
And a bad day for the country, all-around.
Somehow I don't quite loathe him as much after 8 years of #43.
What is the original source for this photo?
