Letter: FDR, Churchill, or Candidate C?

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

In response to Rinaldo Del Gallo III's letter regarding the flaws of MLK, George Washington, and Christopher Columbus in relation to the respective federal holidays named after each man, I ask that he answer the following question, below.

The moral of the story is that people are more than their personal faults. It is a person's goodness in his or her heart that matters far more than the flaws in their character. Candidate A and Candidate B, despite all of their flaws, saved the World from Candidate C. Please don't judge a person by their proverbial book cover. Being a decent human being means having both flaws and a good heart!

Question:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three candidates. Who would you vote for?

Candidate A.

Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist.
He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B.


He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in
college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C.

He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an
occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be our choice?

Decide first ... no peeking, then scroll down for the response.

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.
