IF: tree

Spread the love

This week’s¬†Illustration¬†Friday¬†challenge word is “tree”.
I speak for the trees. Ah-ROOOOOO.
Adlai Stevenson ran for president twice against Dwight Eisenhower and was defeated both times. He once said of Richard Nixon, Eisenhower’s vice-president:
“Nixon is the kind of politician who would cut down a redwood tree, then mount the stump for a speech on conservation.”

Stevenson, one-time governor of Illinois, eventually became Ambassador to the United Nations during the Kennedy administration. He died during his term as Ambassador.

But he sure had Nixon pegged.

  1. Great illustration. How ironic that Nixon’s daughter married Eisenhower’s grandson. I wonder what the Thanksgiving table conversations were!! Do you think that they invited Adlai Stevenson for dessert?
